OH YES. I really like Emily Short's work a LOT. I think I know how the rest of my Friday night is going to go...eighteen endings!

Bronze was the first of hers that I read/played. And then I hunted down everything else of hers that I could find.

I really enjoyed that. I did about three endings on my own before I looked at the walkthrough for possible endings, and then tried to do about six more just by knowing the end. 50% success rate on that. and at one for three on total endings, it's bedtime.

thanks for sharing! I haven't played any IF in a while, but Emily Short is one of the standards. Good to see new work of hers!

Yes yes yes and double yes.

Check out Bronze as well. It's really good.
