About the Story

When a multi-dimensional snake asks you to play a game, you literally can't say no! Is the Red Apple the only place in the world that has hosted a god within its walls? Float through several psychedelic experiences, and interact with demons, monsters, and then some!

Trigger Warning: Light to intense horror, profanity, taboo(spoilers!) and gore.

Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
It seems to have a multiple-branch, multiple-ending structure; though the world appears to be consistent, our path through it may take any direction. Some of these paths involve several choice nodes; some involve just a couple, but all involve quite a few "next page" click-throughs. Even the path with a minimal number of choices involves a substantial amount of text. Some people are okay with this, but I prefer a higher choice-to-text ration. I like the feeling you get when the ending you hit only comes after having made several significant choices.

A short, surreal horror game in Inklewriter, September 28, 2017

Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This game placed low in IFComp 2016. It is in Inklewriter, a beautiful story-focused engine that is now being discontinued.

Snake's Game has several variants depending on the play through, but most seem to deal with a world where time and space can be warped at will, taking you to hell and a variety of other places.

It's fairly short, and the writing felt unpolished, but the other had a lot of heart, making this game more emotionally powerful than most low-ranking games, to me.
