Game Diary

3 11 2014

I just played With Those We Left Alive by Porpentine and Brenda Neotenomie. I found it from reading this article on Interactive Fiction by Leigh Alexander.

It’s a Twine game – a story set in a hellishly twisted world of fascinating nightmarish rituals. Ruled over by a monstrous Empress, in a decaying landscape you can barely glimpse, there is a lot left to the imagination and a steady trickle of revelation. The strangeness is tinged with the mundanity of boredom and self-defeat.

As you play, you are prompted at significant moments to draw symbols onto your skin. You come up with them yourself, so they have a meaning to you and make a record of the themes in the story – the story leaves a mark on you.
