Pepper & Smoke

About the Story

Pepper & Smoke is a simple, linear story made with twine not so much of a game as it is a story with clickable parts. It is about a particular kind of person coming to terms with their past. While I hesitate to call it political, much of it is based on a series of events that occurred in my hometown within the past year.

The story is "mostly true". The details are fictional, but it is a composite of many true events that had occurred to different people. For legal purposes, no further detail will be provided.

Beautifully done. You can tell the author is writing from perspectives that are personal, that are emotional and genuine. content warning: (Spoiler - click to show)If you have bad experiences with police violence, this might be triggering for you, as it gets pretty detailed and... intense. It's a story more than a game, but it's a beautiful one, and you can get several different endings.
