Blow Out the Candles

About the Story

"It is your birthday. Everyone has come and brought you a beautiful cake. Blow out the candles." A short, humorous story set in a zanny galaxy full of talking penguins, quantumsorcery, and the unexpected.

This is my first finished published work, IF or otherwise, and it was written in under 24 hours for my brother's birthday. It's very short and very weird, but hopefully it'll give you a laugh. Not enough of those these days.

Cute little "one move" game in Twine, December 20, 2016
by streever (America)

This is a humorous little Twine game with essentially one move--blowing out the candles--but a dozen or more clicks as you think about who you are, where you are, what you're doing, and who the other people in the room with you are.

It's fairly short and amusing, with essentially two endings--a good and a bad one--both of which can be reached in about 5 minutes.

It was interesting to see a once experimental parser technique applied to a twine-like. I enjoyed it overall, but felt that tighter editing could be applied to the pacing and sense of momentum, something the author does well by show increasingly impatient guests waiting for you to blow out the candles.
