Fun and original Twine work, January 1, 2017
by streever (America)

A typical night out--banter and overpriced beer--takes a turn for the better when you meet the gaze of a cute stranger and decide to introduce yourself.

The writing is fun and humorous, but at times could have used a little editing; the adjectives trip up some of the otherwise well-written passages in the opening.

This debut work breaks from typical slice-of-life work by asking the reader to compete in small mini-games with each significant action. A game of chance, a trivia question, and a reflex text are all used to test the reader. While not directly relevant--no one has ever had to answer a question about ancient Chinese history in order to stand up from their table--these games create a sense of tension and pressure which fits in with the theme and overall mood of the piece.

I am very impressed with this as a debut piece, and hope to see much more from the author.
