This game is something like All I Do is Dream by Megan Stevens from last yearís IFComp. The insomniac PC must decide whether to get out of bed, because of a lingering urge to wash themselves - despite having already done so. This game is a bit vague, but itís an attempt to describe a particular state of mind. It ended, though, before it could get into the meat of the matter.
That said, short, one-topic games like this make up the IF ecosystem, even if most of the IFComp games tend to be more ambitious. I am grateful they exist. I am glad the tools exist to allow people to create games without any expectations of form or substance.
Something is much smaller in scope than the typical IFComp game, and a little forthrightness could have turned it into a sharp, glittering small thing.
This is a short Twine game entered into IFComp 2017.
It branches in a non-trivial, interesting way. You are lying in bed after an evening with some man and you realize you need to wash your hands. But it's dark, and you don't really want to.
This is a character whose life is centered around routines, and around keeping secrets. I found it interesting, but not compelling.
