The Skyscraper and the Scar

by Diego Freire and Ruber Eaglenest

2016

(based on 12 ratings)

About the Story

The skyscraper is silhouetted against the horizon, an open scar on the skyline, rising until it’s lost in the clouds. A promise of prosperity, of something never reached. A monolith of what we once were and might not be again. A beacon in the night, for those who still believe in the strength of concrete, steel and flesh.

[This game contains explicit language, intense violence, blood and gore, drug consumption and sexual references.]

[The game is mobile friendly and it is optimized for all screen sizes.]

Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
There is supposedly some complex stat-tracking involved to determine the sort of person you are based on your choices; presumably there are alternate actions available to people who play a certain way, but I do not think I saw anything that appeared as a result of being "character appropriate" as opposed to being an immediate result of the previous action. Perhaps I haven't explored deeply enough, or perhaps the alernative choices require adherence to a much narrower and more specific path than the ones I trod.

A mid length branching zombie game, May 9, 2017
I beta tested this game. A single playthrough of this game takes you through a series of battles and explorations in a luxury apartment building after a zombie apocalypse.

The game is not too long, and there are some difficulties with the translation. However, on more playthroughs, it has more features: more branches, randomization, multiple languages.
Note: this review is based on older version of the game.

Bien escrita, pero con pocas ramas. | A well-written CYOA with few choices., January 11, 2017

Esta historia permite al usuario a escoger inglés y o español, una cosa útil para aprender este o ese idioma. Los elecciones disponibles no parecen resultar en muchas variaciones o resultados.

This story allows the reader to read in English or Spanish. I consider this somewhat useful for learning languages. However, the available choices don't result in a great variety of results. Then again, the authors' goal may simply be to enjoy several perspectives on the same story.
