Fun for Ryan Veeders and non-Ryan-Veeders alike, March 18, 2016
by Robin Johnson (Edinburgh, Scotland)

Very well written, atmospheric short story about a weird ritual and a harrowing underworld. It gives the impression of having been made specifically for Ryan Veeder (which was the brief of the RV Expo, after all) but, as someone who is not Ryan Veeder, I enjoyed it too.

Visually rich linear Twine game about a mysterious ritual, June 6, 2016

In this entry in the Veeder Exposition, you hear the story of the Veeder, a person with enigmatic power and status.

This game is in Twine with nice graphics. The interactivity comes in by shuffling through a series of replacements for a word or two in a sentence, then moving forward. Sometimes the choice of words influences the story.

The game made me smile, especially with its use and misuse of the word Veeder. And the imagery was poetic and beautiful at times.

Overall, though, it didn't really grab me emotionally, and I wished for more depth in the interaction.
