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!...

Sometimes we lose the things most precious to us and must look for them in unlikely, or sometimes likely places. You have lost your voice and find yourself in a place you do not recognize with its own loss and lies.
