Very long, mostly-linear french twine game about space and Greek Gods, February 8, 2021
It took me (an anglophone with moderate French skills) about two weeks to finish reading this, on and off. I expect a native speaker could finish it in 1-3 hours.
This is a very long twine game about a future earth where we have been visited by aliens and a New World Order is in charge.
It's in several segments that differ quite a bit from each other. The first is working on a space station; the second is engaging in combat and exploring ancient greek ruins underground; and the last is fighting in an arena.
The worldbuilding is intricate and silly (spoiler for midgame): (Spoiler - click to show)the gods you discover are Athena, Ares, and Trollus, who writes in emojis only.
The biggest drawback is the extreme restrictions on freedom. There are only 3-4 'real' options in the game, and those options are just which order to experience content in. The vast majority of choices are 'continue'.
This is listed as just a prologue. Overall, I found it funny, but would have preferred more real (or even pretend) agency.
