The writing is restrained, but a little bit on the nose at the beginning. The writing gets better as the story goes along and the author settles in.
I would definitely read more of this if it were a full-length novella or a slightly expanded and more interactive experience as a full-blown game. There are lots of hooks in this set up to give the reader more choice and more chances to explore and examine and interact. The author does a lot of good things with word-changing paragraphs.
The strongest point of this game has to be the brilliant use of the visual interface that Twine offers. (Spoiler - click to show)I thought the cutscenes right up near the beginning, as well as the moment when you open your eyes in the body, were great. It suits the style of his economical writing and added to the atmosphere of the game. A pity it was so short, though; the story appears to be rich in unspoken backstory.

This Roman adventure is just as good whether you're gay or straight. It's a thrilling tale of blood and conquest, and your sexuality is completely beside the point.
