Excellent piece of interactive fiction and probably the sexiest game I've ever played.

It took me a while to really gel with the writing style and at times things felt a little too vague, but once it clicked for me I immediately restarted to get another ending.

Would have loved to see an expanded version of this in a larger dramatic structure or world. Excellent writing, definitely looking forward to your next project.

Enjoyed hitting endings 1 and 3 for their spectrum of cold to hot.

Thank you for playing and I'm very glad you enjoyed it. We would have loved to expand the story a little more but we had such time constraints that we unfortunately had to really scale it down just so we could submit it. We intended to work on some other short interactive fiction pieces with recurring characters from this one though, so stay tuned for more of it!

Especially good writing, loves the feeling you get when you try to push the buttons of Irian. I died, but I'm definitely going to play it again and see what other outcomes there are. Very well done, especially without any visuals. The writing is very visceral. 

Developer

Thank you lots for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed it! We didn't have much time for visuals so we had to stick to writing, but I'm happy it was entertaining either way.

One of my favorites of this game jam so far! I loved the writing, the subtle and very well-balanced mix of politics and romance made it a truly vampiric experience, going well with the theme. I liked the different choices and the fact that I reached my "dream" ending (3, I wanted that sweet, sweet kiss and communion!) in my first playthrough was very satisfactory. Overall, great game, I will probably play more of this one!

Developer

Thank you very much, happy that you enjoyed it! Glad you found the ending you wanted too, trying to make the paths intuitive but not obvious was an interesting challenge. Hope you'll like the other endings if you do replay.

Fantastic writing. Got ending 2 on the first try, and then 4 on the second. Having the reasoning change rather than the dialog itself was interesting!

Developer

Thank you very much for trying it and thank you for the comment too! I thought that, in a conversation where so much goes unsaid, the reasoning should matter too.

It's a great idea really, much more interesting than the usual. Even more so on a game about vampires, where  there's a lot of smoke and mirrors in every conversation.

My thoughts exactly, great writing, and changing the meaning of the words was a cool choice.

Thanks to you too for playing and for that lovely voice acting on stream. <3
