., September 30, 2016
A fantasy/thriller story about werewolves. The game has two screens, one side written in classical style and the other side written in a contemporary style. I believe even the font is different to accentuate the difference in time period and prose. I loved this, I'm not a person who reads werewolf stories, but this is actually a fairytale, the prose is vivid and there's a sense of fear as the characters search for this person or are running away from something. Although I will admit that due to the double screen aspect and the fact that I read this a few days ago, I'm a little confused about the plot, but I took this as sort of an epic poem. It really is a beauty.

Pros: beautiful, lurid prose. Fantasy genre.
Cons: Some might not like the double screen aspect.

An intriguing short 2-pane game with simultaneous stories, August 21, 2016
This is a short Twine game that was part of a challenge to make short games based on the theme of 'pairs', and was later submitted to Sub-Q magazine.

The game is split into two sides, one dark and one light. One with a villain, one with a heroine.

The story is brief, and only hints at greater things. There is a great deal of world building, but most things are left unexplained.

A fun, light snack.

Fantastic concept, tantalizing glimpse., August 20, 2016
Such an awesome idea! Although extremely tantalizingly short.
A story split into two different *simultaneous* & opposing narratives -it works a little better when the two unfold individually at the start than when they synchronize later.

It'll take a couple of playthroughs to absorb all of the interesting story tidbits going on, and with so many ideas it seems almost like a teaser for something bigger. But really shows what can be done with an interesting concept like this.

Short but sweet fantasy, May 30, 2015

Another maddeningly short story by rosencrantz that drew me in and left me wanting more.

I have never seen an IF story like this—two parts to the same story, literally side-by-side, allowing the reader to shift from one side to the other at will as the story progresses.

A side from the layout, "Silver and Gold" provided an awesome experience!
