About the Story

This is a collection of short Twine games for children that are based on stories in the Book of Mormon.

These stories use images from the Gospel Art Kit: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/media/collection/gospel-art-kit-images

Note for IFDB: These are very short, simple games, each created in a few hours, made for religious purposes. They were made as Sunday entertainment in my local congregation, and the number of games in the anthology may change over time.

Cover art by LPad, traced from Arnold Frieberg.

Simple choices, interesting perspectives on sacred text, April 27, 2023
by Rachel Helps (Utah)
Related reviews: Mormon IF

I am LDS and I've spent a lot of time with the Book of Mormon. I'm also a writer of interactive fiction and a researcher of Mormon literature. As an LDS person, I liked being able to see Book of Mormon events from another perspective, even a simple one meant for teaching children. I liked that "The New Star" pitted honoring one's parents against following Jesus. I liked that you could complain about eating raw meat in "Nephi's Journey." And I liked that you could be a Zoramite or a Nephite in "Moroni's Warriors."

As an IF writer, I didn't find the narrative design or my choices all that interesting. I did like that the styling of the pages reminded me of church manuals. All three games are branch-and-bottleneck with slight changes to the ending text based on your previous choices. As a more experienced player, I wanted more nuance in how the choices affected the narrative. But as an introduction to interactive fiction for children, I understand how it's helpful for all choices to end up in a basically okay ending.

As a Mormon literature scholar, these are a fascinating reprise of the "home literature" era in the early 1900s, where most stories were meant to show the positive consequences of following the commandments (or the inverse).
