this is absolutely RIDICULOUS, but i love it. I wish there were more interactive pieces of writing out there!
An interactive review of Outer Wilds
As well as talking about some of the mechanics that make this game so special, I thought I'd impose some of those mechanics on you, the reader, to hopefully help illustrate some of the points I'm making. Can you finish reading a review when it self destructs every 2.2 minutes? Now's your chance to find out.
Some of the assets and functionality I already had from a previous Outer-Wilds-inspired project. But this creation, built in Twine, is otherwise entirely new, and was created in a few hours. Frankly, if the review makes any sense at all, it's a miracle.

Loved this. Very clever idea, I had a lot of fun with it
Terrific concept, and very interesting to see it applied to staple review formulations like "graphics" and "audio" - got me thinking about e.g. how I sometimes try to dismantle those big familiar structural elements by not-very-artfully weaving between them, much like an indecisive Hearthian astronaut
