“There is a strong need for free material on the site as it keeps the customers interested. I am working on two short stories concurrently with ‘Blackraven’ which will be released at the same time and completely free. This is partly due to marketing (I’ll include links to ‘Blackraven’ with the short stories) and partly to give something free to the community. In a similar vein, I’d love to see some short stories from @JimD, @Vendetta, @ScarletGeisha and @Reaperoa. Who’s with me on that?” - @andymwhy
This quote made me think. A lot.
~ Terminal is the product of that thinking.
I could say so much more, but I won’t. I’ll keep it simple, much like the game.
I’ve spent nearly six months working on something else, and it’s not ready to show.
I’ve spent maybe three nights on this and I feel it’s already ready for your comments, be they good or bad.
Due to HTML5 and CSS3 use, please try and use only IE9, Chrome or Firefox. I won’t support “bugs” found in other browsers. If you’re using FireFox you MUST enter the game’s setup and select ‘declare FireFox’ or the audio will not work due to FireFox’s lack of MP3 support (or other browser’s lack of .ogg, take your pick!).
Much like @Nocturnal_Stillness 's Unnatural: I’ll be writing ~ Terminal in ‘episodes’ or ‘ACTS’ and will try to release them biweekly or monthly, depending on the level of interest and real-life issues, so be sure to save your game (via password) if you wish to continue from where the previous one left off.
Due to the use of copyrighted music, I don’t plan to ever charge for ~ Terminal (nor port it to mobile apps).
Are very welcome, however. I’m assuming there’s a possibility many of you will not like the ‘style’ of the game, if you’ve yet to play, I’m sure you’ll quickly see what I mean. I have no plans or wish to change this, so please don’t ask me to. All other feedback is most welcome (and much appreciated)!

You’re free to copy and use the code found in the script.js file, but please don’t expect me to ‘install’ it for you.
Credit is appreciated, but not strictly necessary; I won’t sue you over it.

About the twitter: I don’t currently use the twitter much (no followers, or tweets for that matter).
Next year, when my other game gets further along I plan to change that, so I thought I could start with ~ Terminal: Follow me, don’t follow me, I don’t really mind. But I’m happy to answer questions and give progress updates on both there and here. I’ll also try to answer any choicescript related questions, if you’re stuck on coding.
And with that, I sincerely hope you enjoy ~ Terminal: A Tale of an End
And if you don’t? Please let me know why! Thank you!
