Comment Wall: Aesop Survivor and Other Twine Games

Thank you in advance for your feedback!


  1. Hi Laura!
    I love how interactive your stories are! I did the Aesop survivor earlier this semester and found it very engaging and fun. It's a cool way to keep readers engaged and make reading the fables fun. I think I personally love the nursery rhyme maze better. I may be biased though because I was able to get out of the maze on my first try! I'm so proud haha. I think I used a little bit of common sense/educated guesses when choosing which paths to pick. I chose ones that I believed were more likely to appear in another nursery rhyme. This was my thought process when choosing options. I may have just been lucky though. I can't wait to see the Anansi faceoff! I read your Tiny Tales of Anansi book and really liked the stories. I wonder how you'll create a game out of those stories!

  2. Hi Laura,
    I really loved how unique your project was for this semester!
    Your concepts were really fun and the way you decided to do the project played super well into your strengths!
    You can really see your skill in writing microfictions in the project, since each is very concise while still painting a very clear picture of the story in question.
    The fact you chose to do them as twine games really made your project stand out due to the high level of interactivity in it!
    I love that you included an image showcasing all of the paths for each story so that people could follow all the different routes if they wanted to.
    My primary bit of feedback though is that I think it might be good to put some form of sizable buffer image between the game and the map of all the routes that says either on it or above it that scrolling past it will spoil the game by showing a map of all the routes. That way people don't accidentally scroll and spoil themselves. (I almost did that myself, honestly.)
