A complex and misunderstood game, July 1, 2016
This game received very low ratings in the 2014 ifcomp. I feel like most of those votes are in error.
First, the game starts with a series of multiple choice answers filled with semi-gibberish. Many people likely saw the first few questions and quit.
Second, after the intake form, you go through 4 rooms, and the second room purposefully contains Twine code, revealing what would have been various choices and reveals. Many assumed this was a mistake.
B-minus has a style that is part impressionistic and part Dada. The gibberish evokes a variety of feelings in a primeval way, and the 'hacked' parts of the game completely change the way you interact with the world.
Overall, a technically brilliant game. However, it was not a joy to play or replay, but more of a crazy experience where once was enough for me.
