This is a short game, less than 500 words, entered into the Neo Twiny Jam.
In it, you recreate a dream of the author where you meet a beautiful individual whom you can try to be with over and over again.

+Descriptiveness: Every word felt like it had a purpose.
+Interactivity: I had the impression of control at first, and when I didn't it felt like it fit the theme.
+Emotional impact: I totally understood where it was coming from, especially as a dream.
+Would I play again or recommend? I did play a couple of times.

The Wizard appears, floating nonchalantly in the air beside you. He grins sideways at you. The Wizard incants "Fantasize," but nothing happens. He shakes his wand. Nothing happens. With a slightly embarrassed glance in your direction, he...
