Confusing language mixer, February 10, 2024
Try not to die is a short Twine story mixing English and French through out the story (between and in sentences).
As the title infer, your goal is to survive the day and if you can have some food. You must try not to die because your partner is trying to kill you (Spoiler - click to show)because you refuse to sign the divorce paper, so they can move on. The game offers different ways to fill in your belly, some which will endanger your life, and others which you will refuse to do. Find some edible food and you'll be good.
While the premise and the paths are somewhat entertaining in a silly way, the confusing prose does damper on the enjoyment of the game. The mix of the language (which is not actual franglais) is inconsistent, as some sentences are fully in French or English, some swap languages with each word, some will have bits in one language and the rest with the other... This often creates strange sentences, as the structure is also muddled between the two languages - English and French don't order the words in the same manner or use the same amount of words to say things.
Adding on the many typos (in both languages) and the textism of only some of the words, you end up with bizarre writing.
