It does not feel particularly game-like--there aren't recognizable challenges nor are there puzzles--but it is well-written and engaging. Perhaps one of my favorite of the non-choice/non-puzzle entries in ifcomp 2013.
An important conversation about impostor syndrome, in Twine, June 7, 2016
This work is mostly lielnear, with a sequence of side comment links and a single story progress link at the bottom.l, until the end when you get some binary choices.
The piece is about imposter syndrome, the feeling that you are not competent at what you do, especially in the context of women, trans individuals, and other minorities.
As a description of imposter syndrome, it excels. As a mindless diversion, it is only mildly successful, but that was never it's goal.
