About the Story

A short, meandering little story about the Minotaur, isolation in a place that you know and love well, and inevitability. Inspired by Jorge Luis Borges' The House of Asterion (1947). 
Content warnings: death, murder, suicide, animal cruelty
Created for the Neo-Interactives Revival Jam, based on Mini Jam 51: Rome. The limitation was "the player is the villain", and this is loosely based on Rome given that Ovid does write about this myth in the Ars Amatoria.

Melancholic and hopeful goodbyes, April 2, 2024

Labyrinth is a short interactive story made in Twine, where you play as the Minotaur, who after a long period of isolation, decides to leave the labyrinth he calls its home and venture out into the world. But before he does so, the beast takes a moment to recollect the time spent in this place and say goodbye to the comforting space.

The writing is strangely prophetic, starting with a snippet of Jorge Luis Borges’ The House of Asterion, which is followed by Today is the day. The day you will leave this place. You can’t explain how you know this, but you know it as firmly as the horns are attached to your head. in the next screen. Yet, the hint is just subtle enough not to realise the inevitable end that is coming. It ripped my heart out when I read the final words…

This was a really good entry!
