And my entry is FINISHED!

This was so much fun to make! I'm pretty happy with it, so I hope y'all enjoy it too. I'm entering in Solo without graphics or audio. Shout out to @enlightningbugs for making the cover art and also for listening to me monologue about the game all weekend.

Here's an update of what the final Twine map looks like:

A big improvement from how I started.

I woke up this morning and immediately continued to work on this, so now I'm going to go eat. I'm excited to play all the entries!


I'm here! I'm working with Twine for this jam, so when "falling" was announced, I was stumped. I was still at work for a few hours at the beginning, but by the time I got home I had a basic idea of what to do.

Progress so far! Since Twine is text based, I'm not using any graphics (or sound), so I decided to get a sense of "falling" by using a timer. The player will have between 30-60 seconds to get through what parts of the story they pick and then see where that gets them when the game ends. I'm inspired in part by Queers in Love at the End of the World.

It took me a few tries to implement a timer, made even harder since I had limited access to the internet yesterday. The way I initially wanted to use the timer didn't work with how the Twine format works, but I have a timer now and it's functional, which is what matters!


Hi, I'm cygni! I found Alakajam a few weeks ago and recently joined now that the 4th one is coming up. This'll be my first jam, so I'm excited to make something for it!

I use Twine for anything I make right now and I want to learn another engine, but I'll be sticking with Twine for this one.

There's a lot of themes so far that I like, so I'm looking forward to see how the voting goes!
