Not my type of game, November 29, 2013
by streever (America)

I don't love twine games, except when they are exceptionally well-done.

In this case, the game has a second strike for me--it presents heavy-handed political opinions as facts.

While I largely agree with the author, and I imagine we'd have very agreeable discussions on politics, the US, and imperialism, I couldn't help but be turned off by the heavy-handed approach of requiring me to agree with the POV as presented in the story in order to continue. It felt artificial, and I didn't enjoy my experience.

I don't think this is a terrible game, and I can see it perhaps having a real impact on someone who doesn't think these things already, but as a committed liberal, it was a little too on-the-nose for me.
