Zestzest

Created for the 20th annual Interactive Fiction competition with programming by lectroniceand CSS/graphics by PaperBlurt.

Of the Twine games, Depression Quest is of course the most infamous, but if it’s a bit on-the-nose for you, try Richard Goodness’ Zest – an acidic game about the days just grinding past, day after day after day, broken only by occasional bursts of frustration, drugs and futility.

–Richard Cobbett, PCGamer

In any case, Zest gives a simulation from which there are assorted narrative escapes, as well the possibility of choosing to live your life in very different ways — and not always because you’ve worked hard and earned something better through horrible grinding, but because a window opened when you didn’t even expect it — gave the game a sense of the possibility of unearned grace.

Hello young limonista!

It’s the hottest week of the year, and ordinarily this would be a problem! But you work at the most popular lemonadery in Sufferette City, and the citizens depend on you to keep cool!

 

TWEEZERtweezer

What is surprising about TWEEZER isn’t how much work has gone into its visual presentation nor that it is silly fun. What I find surprising is how complex TWEEZER is….It’s important to understand that TWEEZER is a parody of RPGs…which pokes at fantasy tropes with love not snark. It’s not about winning, it’s about exploring and finding things. If you find a death ending, high fives all round, because you, Boss, just discovered something.

The Richard Goodness Trilogy: Special HD Edition

There are more than a few reason you should play through those three bundled choose-your-own-adventure things, though the main one has to be that Richard Goodness Gets F*cked Up: A Romance made me laugh. Hard.

–Konstantinos Dimopoulos, IndieGames.com

Everyone knows that the power of Twine is in personal and phenomenal autobiographies. Learn all about my life, including my relationship with my mother Samantha C and my engineer father who died. Amen.

 

Does The Sneaker Have To Matter

There’s always a man. There’s always a city. There’s always bullshit. In 2013, the Orson Welles of Videogames created the finest videogame ever made. This is a tribute to his sensitive genius.

This work contains no spoilers for Bioshock Infinite but will likely make no goddamn sense if you haven’t played it. It will definitely make no goddamn sense if you have.
