About the Story

This small story takes place on space station Tithonus. The main tribunal has just read its verdict: Ramón and Jonathan, also known as the People's Friends, the hangmen who killed so many people, are formally condemned, but they will also go unpunished. The trial audience is angry, but only your friend, Iliana of the "Justice Now" movement, is equipped to do anything about it.

Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

Since classical times, stories have opened "in medias res." This phrase, Latin for "in the middle of things", refers to a narrative that begins during some crucial piece of action, filling in the background and the preceding events sometime later. Ramon and Jonathan fulfills the former part of this bargain, but never the latter.

A tiny game about two prisoners in space, April 17, 2016

This game is about a trial in a science fiction setting. You witness a verdict in a courtroom, a friend gets upset, and new people arrive.

There are four locations, a few NPCS with a total of 10 or so topic responses,and a total game time of 20 turns or less.

There are a lot of guess-the-verb problems that mess with the polish and interactivity. Some descriptions are skimped on. And there's not enough information to care about the characters.
