About the StoryMy very first twine story!
This is a story of you saving your village from a bunch of meanspirited barbarians. A bunch of stuff happens in the middle as well.
The humor is weird and the story even weirder still, so it's not for everyone to enjoy. However if are among the enjoyers I would appreciate a comment.
It's somewhat long and crude as crude can be, but it's mine, damn it.

But this game has a lot of thought and some actually pretty funny humor. You play a villager sent on a quest to find a magical item that can save your people from a tribe.
The narrator frequently talks with you, and the game discusses the balance between choices and story and free will and so on, but only in a goofy way.
I enjoyed this story, but I had low expectations. People expecting it to be great may be less impressed, but this is a long, funny Twine game.
A bit Princess Bride, a bit With Those We Love Alive, a dash of Stanley Parable, and the rest an over-enthusiastic tale of utter slapdash nonsense. I smiled the entire way through.
If you enjoyed The barbarians are coming!...
