A reincarnation story that is hard to follow, March 13, 2024
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This French game has some problems. There is only one available choice on each page; some pages have other links but they are red/unclickable.

The text flows from thought to thought and it isn't always coherent. There are 'episodes' but it jumps from 1 to 6 and then back to 2. The point of view and names change frequently. After a few smaller passages there is one very large passage with no options.

The overall theme seems to be a person who has been or will be reincarnated many times over and over again, and who struggles with or against Gods.

Overall, it's possible this is an abstract, intentional art piece. If the author has some additional intent that I am missing, or a reader sees some hidden beauty in this gem, I'd be happy to rate it higher, but for now I'm giving it 1 star.

A confusing tale, March 11, 2024

Yorouba Un prince venu d’ailleurs is a kinetic Twine story about a non-human being (re)incarnated as a man, and the mysticism around him. Part of the story in the human world is set in and around Gombe, a commune of the DRC.

Due to the writing style, it is quite hard to get into the story. With the peculiar and unusual syntax, the prose will often go from one topic to the next with barely a punctuation mark or a return to the line. Often, characters will change name, going from to the other without much of an explanation (I think they are the same people, just a different way of writing the name).

I did struggle to try to find sense in this story, which was not helped by the way it was structure on the page and from one page to the next either. The game starts with Episode 1, moving then to Episode 7, then coming back to a different Episode 1, which was followed on the same page with Episode 2 and 3. Where were the other Episodes? Were they locked behind the unselectable choices? (A closer look a the file shows that they are nowhere to be found.) Am I missed something?

Trying to piece out the elements to make something cohesive proved difficult. I think I left the game more confused than when I got in…

Un être exceptionnel parmi les hommes, March 10, 2024

Cette fiction interactive nous raconte l’histoire d’un être s’étant incarné sous les traits d’un humain ainsi que l’histoire de cet être.

L’ordre dans lequel l’histoire est conté, ainsi que les (très) long passage de texte sans interaction rendent la compréhension du tout compliqué.
