This game was written in 500 words or less for the Neo Twiny Jam.
It features 2 assassins who have met at knife point. Will you fight, or romance?
It manages to pull a few surprises while playing with well-trodden tropes. The writing is to-the-point and effective. I enjoyed playing it right after I finished re-watching Hawkeye, which includes a similar assassin-on-assassin fight.
Short, but worth it.
You are an assassin, interrupted in your job by a knife at your throat. Your next action will determine whether you live or die, or maybe walk away a bit worse for wear…
For all its violence and tension, I did giggle at some endings, as the writing has quite a bit of humour. Another was pretty hot as well.
A good bite-size thriller!
Being threatened at knifepoint. Intense lesbian sexual tension. Two great tastes that taste great together!
So You Have a Knife at Your Throat has you, an assassin, about to be jumped by a fellow assassin. There's a few lines that hint at more beyond just what's witnessed in the game ("you're pretty damn sure she wants it too," "this has been going on too long," "you don't want to think about how your heart beats faster when she's around"). I like the bits of detail we get, but the dynamic was interesting enough that I would love to see it expanded on in another story. Still, working within the Neo-Twiny Jam constraints, it's worth playing.
