About the Story

In this one-room art piece, you play as a woman in a reserved room at the local library where you and your husband, David, will practise using electric fencing equipment. There's quite a lot of it, and you're not sure what order to put everything on or what connects to what. David, of course, will try to help.

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

This piece leads the player through the experience of suiting up in electric gear for a fencing match. This might not sound like the matter of a thrilling game, but the implementation is extremely detailed, and there is help, in the form of an NPC who can be asked for assistance. The experience is a bit like going through a tutorial in the subject; as a set piece this would be out of place and long-winded in a longer game, but on its own it's fairly interesting.
