Or escape his ramshackle house?
Can you make a friend and find a place in the world?
Or would you prefer to get impossibly drunk trying?

A long exploratory Twine game about a Frankenstein scenario, November 4, 2018
It comes in three acts, two of which are exploratory, and the third of which is mostly a coda.
In the first act, you explore the house of yourself and your master, spending several days or weeks in-game exploring, thinking, learning, and solving some puzzles.
In the second act, you have the chance to interact more with the real world.
The styling was nice here, with Harmonia-like spacing and margins. Options are greyed out to indicate places you should explore more.
This really worked well on a lot of levels. I found the exploration tedious at times, but I don't think that there's an easy fix, and the game is good as-is. My ending was touching.
If you enjoyed Wretch!...
