Not really a game, more of an educational website, April 24, 2023
by Lance Cirone (Backwater, Vermont)

The presentation of this game tripped me up at first. The Twine window on the main page is actually Twine itself, opening a menu for you to edit new stories with. You have to click a different link to access the "game"; it asks you if you know what the word "Herculean" means and what it connects to. I do, and continuing the quiz ends with a bunch of literary text being dumped on you at once. I also don't think there's a way to scroll through the text here, so I had to decrease the size of my browser window.

The website is a branching segment with clashing colors, Comic Sans, and a bunch of images that are too small to really read the captions on. The text analyzes allusions and references in media like Danny Phantom or Zootopia. It's clear that there was thought put into it, and I did find it slightly interesting, but it can barely be classified as a game; it's more akin to a school project. I can tell there was effort put into the writing and research, but I don't think it'd be fair to give this a star rating and judge it as a game.
