Spring Thing 2020 Review: Quest for the Homeland by Nikita Veselov
The game is very short and can be rattled through in a few minutes. The random nature of the storylets, together with the three different play-styles, encourages replayability. There is a nice variety of vignettes: bear attacks, dryad seductions, mountain climbing, food scarcity and more. I found it all rather easy, given that the only choices you get to make are all between "selfish", "selfless", and "other", so you just need to recall your opening choice then act appropriately whenever you get the choice.

An Ink game about managing a group of 100 people, April 7, 2020

This game is written in Ink, always a smooth-looking choice for an engine. The styling is good.

Some of the language could admittedly be more polished. The author admits that English is not their first language, and it shows.

The interactivity is fairly satisfying but not all the way there for me. The same actions might save you or not in different playthroughs. Is it random or stat-tracking? It's hard to say.

Overall, it's interesting.
