About the StoryHello young Limonista!
It's the hottest week of the year, and ordinarily this would be a problem!
But you work at the most popular lemonadery in Sufferette City, and the citizens depend on you to keep cool!
23rd Place - 20th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2014)
Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Itís a text-heavy game that plays like a choose-your-own-adventure gone odd. One with random events, more than a few lovingly gritty illustrations and text that controls its own pace, blinks, pauses dramatically and occasionally does decidedly un-texty things.

In this rather long Twine game, you play as someone who works at some sort of fast food place, and can go to church or the tobacco shop to buy tobacco to 'zest'.
The game has a mix of the absurd, the mundane, and the thoughtful. You have 3 meters, including grossness, and you have to repeat the same options/tasks each day.
The game is at its most absurd in the store, or in dreams; its at its most thoughtful in its depiction of the poor, and of Christian prayers and sermons. And frequently it is both.
This game contains frequent use of the f-word.
