Editorial Reviews

Rock Paper Shotgun
What makes this piece is the quality of the very short, poetic passages that result from going left or right. Though tiny, they are intensely evocative, suggesting entire worlds in a few lines. I found myself playing through this piece for much longer than I would have anticipated.

Funny little piece on a trope, July 7, 2018
Groover have fun with trope of blind choosing in a fork, demonstrating that even little interaction has value thank to surprising outcomes.

I would like that even the title would be an actual fork. To make re-runs more quick.

A series of miniature short stories about fate, May 11, 2017
This was a fun little game. You choose left or right over and over again. Each branch takes you to a microstory about fate; some of which I really enjoyed.

If you play long enough, stuff changes slightly. Overall, though, this was a fun microgame, and worth checking out.

No need for aibohphobia. It's polite on the Zarfian cruelty scale -and- will let you jump to the exciting conclusion if your 2-hour judging period is almost up!

I'm looking for games that aren't exactly what they seem. Perhaps they come across as simple or romantic or anything really, the point is that things take a turn for the worse (or perhaps the better) and everything begins to change....
