An Ink game about mystery, life, and death, November 3, 2023
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This was the first Ectocomp game I played. I played the French version, then later ran through it in English.

It's very extensive for a 4-hour game. It's an Ink game, and you have quite a few different choices throughout the game. The author has used several interesting techniques, like branching and bottlenecking choices, choices that allow users to lawnmower through items in any order, and choices where you have a limited number you can select.

The story is a bit haphazard, as would be expected in a speed game. It had so many elements...there was a jaded romance which I found quite interesting, and then more chance for romance later. But there are also competitive game aspects, and some mystery. To me it felt like three ideas for great games, all rolled into one small game, and so it didn't gel. But I like each of the ideas! Impressive for a work of 4 hours.
