About the Story

Futilty by A.I. Wulf

Futilty is what the name suggests. It tries to explore the dark caverns of guilt and misunderstanding. It's also about the futility of our life. It's a little psychological horror interactive short story.

A Twine story about vague hauntings and ghosts and war, November 4, 2017

This game was entered for Ectocomp 2017.

Like the author's other entry, this game is written using big blocks of text. Unlike the other entry, this one had more typos and grammatical errors, and seems to have been checked a little less.

The story revolves around fellow soldiers Abe and Shep, a psychiatrist, and Mary Shepard, a young woman who seems to have passed away. I had trouble following the timeline and who the narrative character was.

The highlight of the game was the scattered bits of poetry, which I think worked out well.
