A short story about time travel with minimal interactivity, February 3, 2016

This IFComp 2015 game is written using inklewriter. It contains a fairly large amount of text for an interactive fiction game, but it stops at the most interesting point of the story. To me, it felt like the first two chapters of a long novel.

The story is about time travel, and is complicated and intricate. It is clear that the author is excellent at worldbuilding; I read through this game twice, about two weeks apart, and the second time I appreciated the story much more. I was excited to read more, and I hope the author continues the story.

There are a couple of typos, but I think the author may be fixing them, as I remember there being more the first time I read it.

So this story is more of non-interactive fiction, but it is not bad for a sci-fi short story.
