No, I'm not in a game! I won the lottery, dammit!
Thanks so much for playing!
I guess I was trying to force the artificial nature of a game onto something as complex as life which isn't quite as simple as a bunch of dualistic choices. Hence it being the lie that you pick to really start playing, it is a lie after all.
Hopefully it's a bit funny and a bit not funny.
As to the no hope, that's a good point, there isn't really a way to win the "game" - I'll definitely think about putting some more hope in my next Twine!
Thanks again, now I'm off to check out your entry to the Jam!
This was quite depressing. But also quite hilarious. Clicking "truth" got a chuckle out of me. :)
But is this morbid humor, or a piece to be taken seriously? Either way, for a piece to explore the meaning of life, it felt quite constrained, probably b/c of the 300 word limit. And the reality of hope was never quite presented. . . Was that intentional?
(It was also odd for the lie to say "This is real life" but for it to say "Game Over" at the end. Ah, well. And when the choice "for it all to stop" came up, I thought the game meant suicide, but it meant giving your money away. Which I was all in favor toward.)
An experience worth taking, but why is there no hope in this game? I'm curious
(I'm in this Twiny Jam too, by the way. My game is HCF.)
I enjoyed these lies. ^_^
