About the Story
It's an experience I had the other day. Bees, winter, brevity.

A short piece of dynamic fiction about trying some ecological fresh-from-the-comb honey for the first time. There is a little bit of interactivity, but the main draw is in the perfectly gauged prose (I was particularly impressed by the author's way of describing flavours, something I always find difficult to put into words), and the glimpses of the PC's surroundings and backstory.
The hyperlinked words often have little connection with what comes next. Moving to a new page shows the previous paragraphs with the new paragraph added: not my favourite format, but that is a taste thing, and it prevents you from losing track of the narrative. While I'm on the subject of technical details, the use of yellow text for some words is a bit of a pain, since it's almost necessary to highlight it. However, it's rare enough not to be a big issue.
Fine slice of life with an elegiac edge. Read if you want to savour some exact prose, or enjoy honey.
Someone reviewed this game saying it had "Endings for grownups", and that's accurate. This is a mature game, with an older protagonist thinking about life in a bittersweet way.
The focus is on honey, describing it in rich detail, from both scientific and aesthetic viewpoints.
A fun game, especially for foodies. Had one use of yellow font that seemed ill-advised, but only at one point.
Very informative and brief and fun!
