Some people really enjoy difficult puzzle games, like Fish! or Praser 5 or System's Twilight.
This is the first time I've seen such a game done well in Twine. It is very hard; it has been given a 'nasty' forgiveness rating by the author, and that is completely appropriate.
There are frequent deaths and ways to lock yourself out of victory, but there is a multi-save feature which helps.
The first part of the game is an escape the room puzzle. I thought it itself was one of the hardest twine puzzle I had seen, and I thought it was the whole game, and a longish one at that. Once I escaped, I realized the main game was much, much, much bigger. In fact, the next area was huge, and I thought that was the whole game, and then it opened up into the real game! And there's an epilogue about as long as the first complex.
I couldn't finish, even looking at the source code. This is unfair, difficult, and crazy, so if you're in the mood for something like that, you've found it.
This game drives you nuts a couple of times.
The thing is that sometimes you don't know if you're stuck because you are missing something or because you left something behind and you simply won't have the tools to finish it! And that is what I liked the most about it, the struggle: the having to think and repeat dialogues and go back another step... I had forgotten what it was to play a game that takes patience, in these times where if you get stuck immediately you go and find the answer in internet, and I loved it!
Can you post a walkthrough of this game?

2023 Alternative Top 100 by Denk
(18sep2023) This is an alternative to other rating based lists with pros and cons in that it allows for games with fewer ratings (5 ratings required) to reach the top of the list which obviously makes their place on the list quite...
2020 Alternative Top 100 by Denk
(Created 24-Jul-2020) The purpose of this list is not to compete with the IFDB Top 100 but to provide an alternative view, which makes sense for some games. Philosophy: 1. If a game only has 5-star ratings, it is because the game hasn't...
Twine games with free range of movement: A personal list by Kinetic Mouse Car
Free range of movement means the gameplay has parser qualities without the parser part. It allows you to wander around and interact directly with objects or talk to characters in your environment. This list does NOT require games to have...
