I originally created this Twine text game for a NineWorlds Game Jam in 2014? The theme was \'Fairy tales retold\'.
I was teaching myself Twine as well as creating my first piece of interactive fiction, and had just a weekend in which to do it. Found it helped my writing block as I didn\'t have time to worry about whether it was good or not. Strangely liberating, and good fun.
I had this \'wonderful\' idea about the various stories that would be retold from the viewpoint of my main character, once established in the prologue. Each story would be a chapter. Problem? I had branch explosion, didn\'t even get beyond the prologue. To pull each prologue ending in to a usable number I\'d have to create a lot of sudden ends - which would annoy me as a player. Hey ho!
So - I learned a ton, had fun - but never heard what people thought of it. I think I\'ve enough distance now to accept \'my god it\'s terrible\'. I\'ve since entered the games industry, and hopefully learned a lot since. It goes against *all* the in-house rules at the current company.
Still kinda fond of my first flailings, though. Might one day see if there\'s anything worth salvaging. I\'d edit a lot of words out now, for sure...
