Pluck and spin the fools herein,
You wry, long-haired Fates.
Frayed ends this widow mends.
Her tangled tale awaits!
A finalist at this year's Independent Game Festival, The Witch's Yarn was nominated for Innovation in Game Design. Its elegant control method is a milestone for interactive fiction. In the first minute, players are ably immersed in the story, regardless of their ability with computers.
Players become the director of a lighthearted stage-play. They select the actors who create scenes to advance the plot. Different actors create different scenes. So each choice is very important. With the rewind feature, the player can experiment with various actors to solve dramatic conflicts. By doing so, they'll explore many perspectives on this hilarious world of witches, retail, and family disfunction.
Presented as a theater script brought to life, beautiful illustrations and a terrific jazz soundtrack provide the richest of reading experiences. The fun grows as complications arise, which are handled by choosing the character best suited to resolve gradually more difficult challenges. By the end of the tale, an entangled web of conflicted characters must be carefully navigated to bring the drama to a satisfying, whimsical, conclusion.
Its a delightful, interactive pastime for people who enjoy a leisurely read. Play the first two chapters for free!
