Very long, mostly-linear french twine game about space and Greek Gods, February 8, 2021
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 2 hours

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.
