A clinical game, April 16, 2020

This is literally a clinical game, by its topic (a woman set in pieces, maybe to break her personality) and by its language (very technical, maybe too). The result is interesting, but the meaning of the game isn't very clear (certainly as its author wanted).

Classic B-Minus. A short, surreal poem in Twine format, April 5, 2020

B Minus makes what I would describe as anti-games. Just like Ryan Veeder likes to do counter-culture things like making very elaborate set pieces that are useless in the game or giving anti-climactic climaxes, B-minus likes to have functionality that's not all that functional.

In this case, it seems like the links might have some kind of strategy or purpose, but instead it's more like file folders, with the game ending if you get too deep.

The writing is opaque and symbolic, with elaborate language and constructions. I learned the word "aubade", a poem appropriate for dawn or morning.

B-Minus is an author that either pleases you or puzzles you, but I feel pleased.
