Very short, CYOA-style game, October 22, 2013
by streever (America)

Barrow Escape is a map-less CYOA game with binary choices in most situations. It feels a little rough and could benefit from variety and choice.

It is faithful to the source material--I was able to solve and get through it on my first go just by remembering how the original scene worked--so I haven't thoroughly tested, but I suspect there are not additional (good) endings.
