I give one star for each of the following criteria:
-Polish (no or few implementation errors or typos or bugs, nice styling for web games)
-Interactivity (do I feel part of the story? For kinetic fiction, do I feel invested in the action?)
-Emotional impact (any emotion, whether awe, pathos, fear, disgust, etc.)
-Would I play it again?

I don't like talking. Let's build a fire. Swigian is a minimalist game. It is long, but quickly finished, with few words and few complications.
