Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but I couldn't find any contact details: is output text that the player will read (e.g. "You are in a dark hallway") included in the character limit?
I totally understand if it is; just want to be certain.
Absolutely brilliant use of Bitsy graphics, both in terms of attractiveness and how they change according to the plot. While the music isn't yours, it fits the mood perfectly. I found the writing a bit ponderous and melodramatic, but then again, that arguably fits the Gothic/Romantic concept. Still, even if the writing style wasn't too my liking, the text does a good job conveying the creative process. Thank you for making this; playing it was a great experience.
I haven't played a lot of Bitsy games, but yours is certainly the most atmospheric I've played so far. The music is excellent, and you've got a lot of mileage out of the Bitsy graphics. Great use of colour and font effects. I wasn't too fond of the unexpected deaths; just stopping you from leaving the town until you've checked in at the inn/met Jonathan would be enough. All in all, very atmospheric adaptation despite its simple graphics.
Very good retelling of a rather scary part of the Old Testament, and the sound effects made it intense. Non-interactive, but I'm not going to complain about that, any more than I complain about films being non-interactive. My only complaint is that it took a very long time for new text to appear; I often wondered whether I'd reached the end or whether there was more to come.
That's a nitpick. This is a very high-quality work.
That's excellent! I'm always impressed when people create this type of more RPG-like games in platforms like Twine, and this one is fairly in-depth (or at least seems to be, which is what counts) and well-written in its sparse way. I might come back and play this again later.
OK, this is seriously hard to review without spoiling, but there was that one moment when I knew exactly what the next line was going to be, and my breath stuck in my throat.
If you've played it, you'll know the bit I'm talking about.
A lot of people should play this. This is what a pro-men's rights work *should* look like.
Great writing and excellent use of effects. Really makes you recoil from clicking, because you know what's going to happen.
Damn, that's depressing. I cared so much for those little guys. Still, I don't regret playing.
I've never played a Twine game where you can click on different images to proceed. Very interesting work.
I've enjoyed all your games so far (as far as I can recall), and this is no exception. Smart pun/concept/idea (I think I did a double take when I got it), and strikes a balance between "sweet" and "surreal". Very light and simple, but I think it'll stay with me for a long time.
@Chaoseed: Think of it as a pun. In the world of this game, a "moth-er" isn't a female parent; it's the one who creates moths.
This is probably the entry I enjoyed most (so far, at least). Beautiful writing, and the puzzle is great: essentially an exploration puzzle, but one that requires you to understand the dream-logic of the world. I'm extremely impressed and a bit envious.
This may be the entry that impressed me the most. Really simple, and the battles got a bit samey towards the end (though not enough so to make me stop playing), but I'm just impressed someone did this in Twine. Very good work, kudos!
@Chaoseed: Thanks! I actually wouldn't mind expanding this idea into a rather larger game. My original idea included a lot of other things to create, like more rooms and NPCs, but that ended up going way over the wordcount.
