I really did feel like a side character through Keenan's eyes seeing everything from his perspective instead of Max. I also like how you integrated the link's within the story opposed to giving the options at the bottom of the passage. Good Job!

Interesting, creepy story and well written. You are a talented writer. I read it while listening to your suggested Boards of Canada music, which helped set the mood well. The only issue I saw was that a couple pages referenced things that I had never heard of before, so maybe I missed clicking on some links. I had also never heard of Twine before, so I’ll have to check that out. Nice work!

A couple of things did end up getting cut, specifically the dream intermissions which there remains at least some passing reference to. There's some dumb pop culture and literary references in there too that I didn't really provide context for also, which I kind of regret but that's okay. 


Thank you for the comment and for taking the trip through it!

An interesting story. I'm just as curious as Keegan is as to what is really going on.

Too bad he's not the hero, huh?
