It’s a late-night, modern-time story in chat-format between the protagonist and another character about a screwed up solar panel and a non-kept promise. You can feel the righteous fury of Earwyn through the game.
You can follow the story by clicking on the choice-like links. Daeyang, the spectator of gladiator games, being you, the actual protagonist, has two choice to make between the options presented. Either add fuel to the fire for your amusement or stay indifferent to the whole situation. Take your pick.
The pacing is great and there are no grammar errors as far as I read.
A great job was done in conveying the characters’ emotions and personalities, and I’m not speaking of the dialogue lines only. Searching the meanings of the characters’ showed some interesting results, one of them being their relation to water. Earwyn’s name means “friend of the sea” which explains the lighthouse mentioned while Daeyang means “deep ocean” which is fitting considering how his personality can kind of be defined by the choices the player makes.
The chat was provided a fun gameplay experience. Definitely recommended for people who like short and fun stories.
Overall rating: 9.66 (5/5 in IFDB rating scale)
This game was written for the Neo Twiny Jam using 500 words or less.
Someone logs onto a group chat and demands an explanation about a solar panel. It could just be a friendly group of people with nearby cabins, or a post-apocalyptic group, or just some rural people. It's hard to tell.
It's pretty funny though. There's some mild swearing, but overall I laughed out loud multiple times at this, and I haven't done that at a game for quite a while.
I really enjoyed this game. It's presented as a traditional Discord conversation between friends: there's some drama over one of your friends scamming another by refusing to fix their solar panel. The comedic timing, the writing styles each character has, the way you ping people to get them involved, it feels straight out of real life. A very short story, as per the Neo-Twiny Jam rules, but it worked well.
