About the StoryNo longer are William McGonagall's ruinous effects confined to poetry.
A Tale of the Cave is the unlikely marriage between Scotland's notoriously bad poet and the classic cave-crawl genre.
Made for the Ruin Jam 2014.

It's not difficult; actions are well-clued, and although you'll die several times learning the parameters of the Cave, the deaths are funny and enjoyable.
I really liked the attention to layout and design; this is an easy-to-read Twine.
I had a lot of fun reading this and highly recommend it; the poetry is awful in an endearing way, and packs this short adventure with whimsy and joy.
