Enjoyed this evocation of spinning an ever-wilder yarn -I would have liked a bit more connective tissue between the options, as some of felt a little too randomised, but a great effort in a short time!

Amazing work creating all of this in three days!! Characterful and immersive and really great use of the bitsy style; congrats! :)

Great atmosphere and sad, eerie tone to this game - I enjoyed exploring the various regions. Agree with the comment below that I wanted a step in between exploring and reaching a dead end, but I know it's tough when working to a deadline! 

This was great! Super fun and original way of presenting layers of narrative/information

Liked the strange atmosphere and the dream logic of this. The sound worked well with the eerie tone, but maybe got a but repetitive after a while. Really liked the use of alternate text in the job application email

Bonus points for being *completely* off piste and unexpected!

I liked the concept here, though I wondered if the descriptions of the paintings were going to change if I went back to them, which could have helped the narrative element

This had such a nice vibe - and I like the slow but exponential addition of options throughout the game and the changing landscapes. Some really nice narrative moments.

Fantastic use of Binksi! Short but thematic and evocative

Absolutely loved the concept of this; the act of gathering songs and the unreliability of narration and memory as the story progresses. Like a cross between 1001 Nights and the Child Ballads! Such a rich framework for a potential future game (which I'd 100% play).

Sure, I'll try to recreate steps and let you know if it happens again!

Thanks, I'd love to do an interactive book recommendations library! 

Very cute! I think I broke it at one point... but it was fun to explore, and I enjoyed the use of the art style!

Really enjoyed this; fantastic atmosphere with expansive-feeling choices and intriguing hints about the wider world. Looking forward to playing more!

Thanks! I think I'll definitely play around in the future with the concept of exploring a book and/or entrusting a story to the whim of a dice roll...

Thank you! Choosing passages from across a a thousand plus years was fun. I wish I'd had time to write something longer (I had a book deadline on the same day as the inkjam deadline!!)

Thank you! Interactive poetry sounds intriguing...

Loved this! Great use of art and music; enjoyed the switch between narrative voices.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks! In real life there's no way I would've gone down there...

Thanks! Done a fair amount of movie trawling in my time.

What a lovely piece of storytelling. A snapshot into a wider world.

This was fun! I think I picked the right witches because I knew them, or used the photos to guess, so all of my encounters were on the good side. But I really like the concept. Definitely something that could be expanded!

Thank you! And thanks for playing.

This was excellent. Immersive storytelling and great use of typography; love the slightly melancholy nature of it.

I loved this! Very smooth, great graphics and a fun story. I was a charismatic turtle!

This was entirely excellent. Great dialogue and narrative, interesting choices. And I managed to make it through on the first try.

This was a great concept that kept me trying over and again. I managed to get into the knowledge base entry and read what was there, but kept on through impending dooms. Really good.

This was great fun! I played through a couple of times before eventually succeeding. Original theme, tapping into my ikea nightmares.

Really liked this, smart and Kafkaesque. Took me a few goes to get the hang of things, and I'll admit I gave up before the end after getting quite far through and failing... But certainly original and engaging.

Thanks for playing! (And now THERE'S an idea to expand on...)

Thank you so much! I agree, some sections I think are stronger than others, but glad you enjoyed overall. :)

This was great; well-written and engaging, with a fun setting. A jolly good time was had by all.

Def impressed by what you all pulled together in the time! Especially the atmosphere and the mystery. (I also had to mess about with the screen a bit, in terms of finding how to click and move).

Nice one. Neat way to explore the reflexive refresh!

Thanks! I felt like I was being a bit, err, on the nose but that's what I came up with on the Friday night so that's where it went!

Thank you! I was hoping to achieve something like that.

Thought this was a memorable game; short but poignant and effective. 

Very slick storytelling indeed; I played through twice (having got glimpses of the fantastical the first time around). Weirdly I think I preferred the mundane ending as a result, and the dream-like, unexplained events.

Likewise, I didn't win, just got eaten! But it was fun; especially enjoyed how the environment and denizens roamed, and the combination of fantastical and mundane. Also I made lots of knotty decisions going forward and back and I think there was only one mistake that I noticed, which considering the amount of shifting about is impressive!
