  • As a big fan of interactive fiction I'm glad to see some turn up in this jam! The core concept - characters trapped in a existential situation and forced to take it for granted - is a great conceit and the setting of a bus is an original take. A lot of effort was put into setting the scene and introducing a few characters over a linear series of actions which aided the setting really well. The multimedia elements to the twine story - music and backgrounds - added a lot of immersion and definitely made the experience more engaging. 

    We thought it deserved to be one of the 'Host's Choices' for this jam. Thanks so much for submitting your game!

Nice! It's a pretty spooky situation and well written. Only real criticism would be that parts of the text can be a bit hard to read on the "bus" background, but it's not too bad.
