Strong and sad, May 15, 2012
I just finished this story and I can't stop thinking about it. It is a well-written story about a ....well, to give anything away would be wrong. Finding out who the protagonist is and what they are doing is the entire game, and the source of the horror in the story. I was surprised at how sympathetic the main character was. It made the story so sad what they were going through, and it made one of the endings all the more awful. The subject matter of this story could be offensive, or even funny in a sick way, but the author keeps it simple and does a good job of having the reader see through the eyes of the protagonist and feel for another innocent character in the story, too. It's a very short game, and I appreciated the way examining objects advanced the story. It kept me in the story since I didn't have to struggle to come up with what the author wanted me to do. Instead, I just got deeper and deeper into this world, although in some way I did not want to. I also liked menace of the natural world in this game. It changed the way I think and feel about the bird (not the one in the title) mentioned here. Overall, a thoughtful and observant story which puts you in the shoes of another person who acts in a way you could never imagine doing yourself. After I finished, I had the same feeling that I do when I wake up from a bad dream and am so thankful none of that really happened.
