I think of narrative game mechanics as a relationship between the story and the gameplay.  Specifically that the game itself is to drive the story forward and shape that story rather than to achieve some goal or defeat an enemy.

You wrote (and programmed) a very cool adventure!

At first I thought I had seen most, then I discovered a totally different path (mainly be being random in my decisions!).

I peeked at the Twine source and see that I'm prob not even half-way through the possibilities!

What is your interpretation of the story? / Re: Your interpretation of the story

  • people can do terrible things
  • even kids can do terrible things
  • kids need help and guidance from adults
  • trusting others can be difficult (someone might be trying to help us)
  • the Dr. is a serial killer and forces kids to dismember bodies
