Short, interesting example of IF, August 5, 2018
I've been working my way through Aaron Reed's book and decided (about ~100 pgs in) that I should play the game through first to better understand what's going on and where the story's going. I think it was a good choice -- it's easier to think about "writing" a story when you know where it's going!

It's short, but interesting. I liked the story (Spoiler - click to show)and the memories/talents parts. I did notice a few areas where synonyms for verbs should've been used, like (Spoiler - click to show)there's a part where it says you could probably leap, but typing "leap" doesn't work -- you have to say "jump", but this is minor. I think this is a good learn-to-write-IF example game.
