Lords and ladies, honourable knights and virtuous dames, knaves and thieves, rogues and roguesses, blackguards and assassins, the living and the dead! Come one, come all, and marvel at the most shocking and twisted freaks gathered here for your entertainment and amusement!


*takes the mask off* Alright, folks, 'twas my attempt to bite the creepy carnival style. How did I do? Wink

For those not in the know, Twine games could be described as a hybrid of text games and choose your own adventure books. The story is mostly told through hypertext. Some of them are quite simple, some are clearly authors' self-therapy, some are literary experiments... and some - in addition to being creatively and well written - are completely and utterly strange, unsettling and thought-provoking.

This is the kind of Twine games I would like to recommend here, one at a time. Who knows what discussions might arise from this twisted soil? Wink

Before I go any further: these games come with a warning for disturbing imagery, violence and - in some cases - risque content. Wouldn't have it any other way, personally.

Come one, come all! Remark this most unusual freak of a Twine game!

Their Angelic Understanding is a story about scars, loss, and revenge. It seems alien and fantastical... until it makes almost too much sense. It was written by porpentine - and, in my not so humble opinion, damn well at that. Highly recommended! Smile

Well, I do not know if two post in a row count as spamming, but I really wanted to recommend something and I do not know when will I have the next chance, so:

Well, Cara said posting again was not spamming Wink, so here I go:

Detritus by Mary Hamilton is a game about picking yourself up and moving on. Again, again, and again, with consequences that are mundane and obvious, yet somewhat chilling all the same. It's relatable, it brings back memories, and it might make one think of Diogenes.

With Those We Love Alive by porpentine(again, because she is a bizzare, Twine-game-making machine and I sometimes kind of want to build her a shrine Very Happy) is a game about... what exactly? Freedom in an insect-skull-eldritch abomination autocracy? Choices? The meaning of the past? Drawing sigils on one's skin? I do not know, but something about it makes me want to play, again and again, until I find out. Smile
