About the StoryC:\User\█████> "1181 is a Twine inspired by the Fermi paradox, cosmic horror, and Isaiah 34:14."
This twine contains multiple endings and is best played in fullscreen. Gail (@notgojira) did the tremendous job of programming this behemoth, figuring out its scripts, and providing its concept & visuals (plus writing a certain chilling exchange near the end) while @RicassoFiction wrote the rest. It was finished in in ten days for the Fermi Paradox Jam (#fermijam).

Compelling work of cosmic horror with Judeo-Christian overtones, December 29, 2016
The type is well-designed, and the overall effort feels polished, with a nice use of imagery and visuals. I may be spoiled, but I think some audio component would have elevated the overall effect and increased the atmosphere.
The one quibble I have with the plot and theme is that I don't feel like we have a real chance to connect with the character, which reduces the impact of the overall story. We open with the acknowledgement that we are volunteers at this institute, but we don't understand the work we're doing or the importance of it. Why are we here? Is it for college? Do we really work a day job and come in here at night to do free work for something we don't understand and can't explain? I think the piece would benefit from having a better sense of who we are, why we're here, and how this encounter with a different identity affects us.
Overall, I'd give this piece high marks for atmosphere and tension, particularly in the second act, when physical danger is introduced.
