Jokey walls-o'-text by a great author. Pretty linear story about roguelikes/RPGs, February 3, 2016
However, one of the games features is that every link provides a huge wall of often repetitive text. Also, the narrative voice is jokey/juvenile, whichI personally don't enjoy very much in a game.
Overall, this is an above average twine game, but I don't recommend it. I strongly recommend the other games by the author.
Funny story subverting RPG tropes, December 4, 2013
Hennessy is a good writer, employing colloquialisms in a way that sells the parody/satire of this piece.
This isn't a challenging or difficult piece, but rather a fun, light-hearted narrative which is easy to enjoy.
