About the Story
This game exists both as an ADRIFT game and as an Eamon CS game. Eamon CS is a modular system so you can bring weapons, armour and stats from one adventure to another. Below is the intro story for the ADRIFT version.
58th Place - 23rd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2017)
The original ADRIFT version is still available for online play as well as it can be played on Windows and Android with ADRIFT interpreters.
Strategy for this game consists of finding something that you can kill, and which will not kill you first. I will say at least that the game is not cruel — you always know your status and can decide whether to press an attack or not. Also, if you get in over your head, you can always flee an encounter, and the opposing monster does not get an attack of opportunity as it might in some table top RPGs.

I helped beta test this game.
This game meets my niche interests well. It is a combat random combat RPG in a fantasy setting, where it's mostly puzzle-based; most monsters are extremely difficult to defeat until you solve another puzzle, than become generally easy. It allows for some variability, though, as you can sequence break or die in an easy fight due to randomness.
I thought this was fun. A couple of times I felt thwarted by not knowing what to do, though.

There's this pause on the Makida every time the current Sandman goes back into the cryotube, and before the new one awakes. A certain calm where all is still. The Makida's dull hum is heard, but that is all. No footsteps. No whispers. No...
