Off-Site Reviews

Emily Short's Interactive Storytelling
Even though the piece is quite short, there is room enough in Groover’s story for several surprises. A lovely, eerie meditation on what is truly monstrous.

Was das Spiel interessant macht, ist das Setting im historischen Japan des 16. Jahrhunderts (Feudalzeit, Sengoku Periode). Der Autor integriert auf gelungene Weise japanische Begriffe und zitiert japanische Schriftsteller in einer für die Geschichte adaptierten Form. Zugleich erzählt er den historischen Kontext der im Spiel erwähnten Figuren.

The writing in verse enforces a certain rhythm to the story and greatly eases the constant breaking of time and continuity it does – descriptions of immediate objects flow in and out of flashbacks. This is perhaps even gentler than Groover’s past work in terms of accomodating people who are not accustomed to the parser; almost every interaction is explicitly prompted by the game.
