About the Story

Theomer's been quiet tonight...

<1,000 words. Many paths to a single main ending. One early ending that might be a little unfair--but that's what the "restart" button is for!

Written for the 2024 Dialogue Jam. Cover made by me using photos by Joe Shields and Ben Sweet via Unsplash.

Him (and Us) is a short conversation, made with Ink, between Theomer and Heron before dinner, though it starts with a bit of difficulty, as Theomer is awfully quiet. Playing as Heron, you have different ways of pushing your partner to talk, forcing him to reveal an unpleasant interaction prior to this.

There is only one ending to this entry, one where you finish the conversation with dinner. Though, whether you learn about the secret interaction will depend on your choices. (And it took me a few tries to finally get the right combo… which I got more by chance than by conscious choice).

Still, you don’t really learn who was the interlocutor (though it could be an easy guess), nor the reason for that interaction, only that it was not pleasant and you do not seem to arbour any good will towards that person. The silence answers it all…
