10pm, and dinner is still sitting in the oven.

You look at the clock.

You look at the door.

You wait.

thought-provoking, January 30, 2020
Honestly, this is the first time I've been on this site and yours is the first story I looked at. I wasn't expecting to be so engaged, or to feel quite so sorry for a character I'd played for all of 5 minutes. Really lovely work on characterisation!

A fancy symbol-sliding game, November 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes
This game has you speak completely in symbols.

You are bird, a child living with a single male named Ty. Ty has problems, and so do you.

You communicate with Ty completely in symbols. What this means in-game is never explained.

This story didn't grab me, but the presentation was slick, and it's a game worth replaying. Sometimes technical stuff is enough to impress me on its own; however, the author has a great knack for characterization as well.

Unique narration and character interaction experience, February 22, 2020
by Lance Campbell (United States)
This is a fairly short and simple IF work that I originally thought was a built in Texture because of the game mechanics. The fact that it is a Twine game with an innovative UI and dialogue system is what makes it stand out from the crowd. The ideas presented in 10pm should be explored further. There is some real potential here for innovation in narration, dialogue, and character relationships.
