@Norbez, you have no idea how glad your response made me. That kind of mystery that causes people to keep the story on their minds afterwards was one of my objectives, it makes me happy to see that I've succeeded.

As for the pondering the limits of freedom, honestly I agree with you, I feel like I rushed that description, since I was pressed for time in completing my submission, I denied my own beliefs in death of the author by giving the players a pre-conceived notion of what the game means, which I kinda dislike doing, I will change that later on when I think of a better way to summarize it.

Lastly, there is a meaning to it all, even to the lack of a setting, there is for me, but I prefer to hear whatever others think about the game, so if you have any thoughts about it, they are very welcome!

Kinda agree with Kuriboh: What did I just read?

This is a well written story; some grammar errors here and there, but they didn't bog down the experience. But I have no idea the story's context (is this realistic fiction? fantasy? sci-fi? etc.) and I don't understand how this challenged me "to ponder the boundaries of freedom". Is it because of the restricted choices I could make? Or because of environmental restrictions? I really have no idea. But I would like to know more, so you have succeeded in creating an air of mystery. I wonder if the thing "eating" at the player and the woman is physical or mental . . .

(btw, I'm in the Twiny Jam, too! My game is HCF. Check it out?)
