About the Story

You're there right next to me, and yet it almost feels as if there are miles filling the distance between us.

Coffee For Five is a very short interactive novel written and programmed in the span of 2 weeks for the Bare Bones Jam. Step into the shoes of the unnamed protagonist as they spend a few moments alone with a very close friend while waiting for your big order of coffee (and a shake) to be prepared. It is a standalone with 2,048 words and only one ending, but the story may be revisited in the future if given a chance.

A retrospecting coffee break, November 15, 2023

A short cute kinetic(-ish) story about the what are/could/should have been in ChoiceScript. The writing is full of emotion, (unrequited?) feelings, and maybe even a hint of regret. Retrospection is a big focus of the story itself.

A strange thing from it was the choice of the You's and I's here. In usual ChoiceScript fashion, the main body of the text refers to the player as You, while it uses I for the choice options. In this game, You's and I's share the same space. Are we supposed to be the I and reflect on our feelings and relationships? or the You and discover how bad of a friends we probably are?
The ambiguity of it made me a bit confused, but I liked it as well.
