Stream of Pretentiousness: The Daily Interactive

Stream of Pretentiousness on

I'm making a new chapter of an experimental Twine game every day. As of posting, there are 5 chapters and I haven't missed a day. I'd fiddled around in Twine before, but not much, so I'm really learning as I go. My goal with this project is to break down the mental barriers telling me my work needs to be perfect, polished, while also being unoffensive to every conceivable player (because I do value accessibility in my games highly—but that can become a big encumbrance).

So far it's also been a place to express my inner thoughts, process my life, and explore my issues with gender.

I heard about this community forever ago and it's been on the back of my mind. I thought I'd give it a shot and actually share here now that I have a project which is such a good fit.

See you tomorrow!



Welcome! The variety between entries so far is interesting. Stick with it. I'm curious to see where it will end up.

A brief technical question, if anyone knows: is there a built-in way to go back to a previous node when twine is hosted on (The back button on the browser just leaves, and going into fullscreen does not appear to reveal any further controls.)

Is that not showing up for you? Would be worth figuring that out and fixing, if so.
