A brilliant choice game with a meta narrative and text input, February 3, 2019

This is a well-done IFComp 2018 game.

It runs in ITCH and is primarily choice-based. The conceit is that the author wanted to develop a big, fun sci-fi fi puzzle game, but didn't succeed.

Instead, he leaves the frame of his unfinished game alone, and adds author commentary. As the game progresses, the protagonist has more and more power to affect the game itself.

The styling is excellent, with several beautiful images and switches between different interfaces. The music is lovely and appropriate.

This is a game made with love, and it shows.

What is ITCH? Do you mean INSTEAD?

I meant the website itch.io (I have no idea why I capitalized it). I dislike playing games on Itch because the layout is obnoxious, so I thought it was worth mentioning in case anyone else has itch-related feelings.

Ah. You don't need to play it on itch.io; you can also download and install the game for Windows or Mac, or install an INSTEAD interpreter for Windows/Mac/Linux.
