About the Story


Created for the Neo-Twiny Game Jam, with the stipulation that the game be shorter than 500 words in length. TERMINAL VELOCITY is precisely 499 words in length, minus code. Content warnings for unreality and suicidal ideation.

The folly of Icarus, July 17, 2023

This is a pretty solid representation of the myth of Icarus. You play as the fated child, ready for your first flight, but with a mocking crow observing you.

This game is written for the Neo Twiny Jam, with <500 words, so there's not a ton of story, but the author manages to make it feel both long and meaningful by having series of pages with many links of which you can only click one. There's no going back, contributing to the feel of falling.

The contrast between the main text and the 'inevitable' text felt a bit off to me in a way that's hard to express. But I liked the overall effect of this and enjoyed the mythology references.

Icarus, the myth, the man, the fall, June 23, 2023

“You will fail.” “Inevitable.”
The game tells you from the start you will not succeed. No matter your questions, no matter you determination, no matter… You will fail. It is inevitable.
This retelling through a minimalist and almost sci-fi formatting adds onto the tragic myth of Icarus. Really well done.
