Well, I have a little bit of free time tonight so I guess I’ll play a few more games!
@Lawnch: a clean little Twine game! I once couldn’t get a friend of mine to agree that games—especially Twine games—can and should sometimes be very, very short experiences. They kind of end up feeling like a video game equivalent of a pithy saying. Also I doubt this was intentional(?) but on the page with the most identifiers, the “Leave them alone.” link option fell off the screen and I had to proceed by choosing the bad option
@hellojed: yeah, you got me. I lost my grandfather when I was much younger, but I had a lot of the same thoughts as those you communicated. I also ask myself why I didn’t spend more time with him, and probably in fewer words, too, as I was still just a teenager. The “Press E To” conceit is interesting, and I like that you kinda go against its very generic and expected use in CoD by basically writing enough that it really does become a specific act—you paying respect to your grandfather. Considering where it was featured, I’m sure you’ve read better takes on your work already!
@sweetJP: Super awesome, really wonderful nonsense joke of a game that, while memey, as you admit, really does so much to earn its existence. You guys got pretty close to the general feel of Seinfeld’s character writing and that does so much for the joke. Pretty impressed that you guys even went all out and basically plotted out a full episode! Just wonderfully enjoyable.
