Some interesting ideas but not really sure where it's going., October 9, 2019

This game has a retro-looking font. A button on the lower right titled 'messages' tells you that it was found on some old floppy disks.

The idea is that you're supposed to be able to click on certain words related to grammar lessons in the text on the lefthand side of the screen. I opened up the game in twinery to verify this, and there is code there for it, but it didn't work for me on Chrome.

Essentially, there are 6 'grammar lessons' but they are just an excuse for the creator of the software (in-game) to publish chunks of her novel.

Overall, it's interesting, but it's short, and it just kind of peters out. The chrome bug made the interactivity and polish just not there for me.

The one thing I did like was the writing in the actual novel. It was descriptive and interesting.

it doesn't work as is on firefox, either, but i was able to get it to accept words if i highlighted them with the cursor, then clicked on the highlight.

there's no obvious way to get to deeper content, though. not sure i'd really call this interactive fiction, so much as incomplete regular fiction presented in an odd way. the title and description also don't seem to match the finished game.
