An incredibly hard puzzle twine game with complicated inventory and riddles, November 19, 2017

Some people really enjoy difficult puzzle games, like Fish! or Praser 5 or System's Twilight.

This is the first time I've seen such a game done well in Twine. It is very hard; it has been given a 'nasty' forgiveness rating by the author, and that is completely appropriate.

There are frequent deaths and ways to lock yourself out of victory, but there is a multi-save feature which helps.

The first part of the game is an escape the room puzzle. I thought it itself was one of the hardest twine puzzle I had seen, and I thought it was the whole game, and a longish one at that. Once I escaped, I realized the main game was much, much, much bigger. In fact, the next area was huge, and I thought that was the whole game, and then it opened up into the real game! And there's an epilogue about as long as the first complex.

I couldn't finish, even looking at the source code. This is unfair, difficult, and crazy, so if you're in the mood for something like that, you've found it.

Thanks so much for your review!!! I made this in a week. Yes maybe it's hard and very unforgiving but if you get to the end(s) of the game, I hope you can find the overall experience somehow rewarding.


(Spoiler - click to show)Note there are multiple endings (five in total, colour-coded). One of them misses out the entire final section. The other four are all accessible at the end, depending on a last-stage choice (and/or inventory conditions).
Hope you can find all of them!
