Possibilities in the TinyUtopias IF Jam
...a lovely little gem of a piece, shards of a life like a kaleidoscope which you can turn over. The work features a very clear protagonist, all the pieces of their life jangling together, picked over and made whole (perhaps, just perhaps) by context and memory. There’s no obligation or duty or binding of the PC; just experience, rest, quiet.

A bite-sized game about wrapping up a magical life, April 20, 2016

This is an entry in the Tiny Utopias jam. In this short Short Twine game, you play a figure in a medieval-esque world dealing with the aftermath of a magical life.

The writing is Short's characteristic style, with imaginative magical inventions and a dignified but slightly dangerous tone.

I found the game enjoyable, with good interactivity through the design of the links. However, I felt an emotional distance from the narrator, and I felt that the game could have used some more graphical love (the standard Twine styling is not bad, but it didnt seem as effective in this game).
