thought-provoking metaphor for investigative journalism, January 9, 2016
by namekuseijin (anywhere but home)
Very good twine IF about investigative journalism disguised as a detective game in search for The News. Lavish presentation in 50's style radio news, a compelling story and solid prose. Interactions are about delving deeper into the story and places, looking for clues of the missing news monster. In between, sarcastic commentary about the meaning of life and the deeds of our protagonist by the game narrator, the very news announcer back at the radio station...

It's very good to see once in a while a very bright and polished IF out of the dozens of halfsketched static fiction propaganda or short diary entries that seem to be the bread and butter of the twine community...
