Just wanted to say I really dug this, it was one of my top three for the whole jam, and I thought it was a completely ingenious use of the limited word count.

It's really cool to see horror elements in a milieu that's not contemporary or Western. I was really pleased with the ending. I felt it might have benefited from having a distinct font style for links that were going to unfold on the page versus ones that were going to progress the story.
Really enjoyed this exploration of what's REALLY scary in life: public speaking and dying laptop batteries. The way the story unfurled, becoming increasingly surreal and macabre, was paced perfectly.
I really loved how this put me in the headspace you must have been in during that bike trip. At one point, as I clicked "keep riding" again and again and seemed to make no progress, I started to wonder if the game was sending me into a loop and I'd never make it to my friend's house at all -- I felt palpable relief to arrive and get an ending. The prose was also evocative. Like it a ton. Looking forward to your next one!
Loved this! Incredible world-building. There were five or six moments where I just had to stop and marvel at the weirdness of an image before moving on. Favourite moment: the cloaks and the Milk of Human Kindness.
If you're in a cyberpunk phase, DEFINITELY check out Gibson. Especially if you can put yourself in the mindset that he was writing this stuff in the '80s, it's really amazing how well he predicted so much of the world today.
