1 of 1 people found the following review helpful:An intriguing fantasy twinelike game in free form verse, May 11, 2017
by MathBrushThis is the first chapter of a longer game. It is written in free form verses, but they are quite easy to read as normal paragraphs, and the broken up style is quite nice.
The game has a sort of pagan witch style of magic, with archetypes like the crone, the elder, the maiden, and the mother, a shadow world, etc.
The game focuses a lot on mating and dating, but not in any explicit form; the society just has a more free form culture, a lot like the fictional society in Friends where there are few consequences.
Overall, well eone, especially in setting-building.
