IF with little interaction, June 2, 2018

The amount of interactivity in Mr. Dias' game is limited to that of a book that needs pages turned. There are (near the end of the game) a few choices that will win or lose the game for you. The story is interesting and a fun and short read. It does not really reflect the complexities of interactive fiction, though.

A retelling of Orpheus and Euydice with a tinge of horror , February 3, 2016

This is a mid length Twine game published in Sub-Q magazine. You play Orpheus, descending to the depths of he'll to retrieve Eurydice.

The beginning diverges sharply from the original narrative, owing more to Our Angelical Understanding than to the ancient poets. As the game continues, though, it draws nearer, until it reaches the same endless feeling of the original at the end.

The game includes some body horror, such as pre-modern-medicine surgery, deformed corpses, etc. It's roughly similar to the amount of horror in the film What Dreams May Come.

Overall, an effective piece.
