About the StorySometime during 1987, your father comes home from work--late, as usual. He tosses a small box onto the kitchen counter. "Here," he says, "you wanted fish. You get these. Let's see how you do first, and then maybe we'll get a real tank."

A polished and well-designed story framed as a simulation, November 16, 2017
This is a Twine game framed as a situation (specifically of feeding sea-monkeys), which the actual story is fitted into.
I found the colors and presentation very nice, and the game overall very polished. I did find it frustrating how long it took to reach the final ending, but that was mostly due to time crunch around IFComp. If you have time to play, this is a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Contains infrequent strong profanity.
