Hello. I made a short game in Twine based on one of my older short stories. I made it as more of an experiment with the tool – mostly playing with the presentation. I’m personally quite happy with the results!
A short description:
In the near future, a peculiar type of coffin is invented. One that takes the genetic material of the corpse within it to produce a special tree. It doesn’t take long for cemeteries to no longer be barren. In fact, traditional tombstones end up being abandoned altogether. Why wouldn’t they?
The person’s memory is preserved – and reflected – in what comes out of the ground. It’s all you need.
A man visits such a grave – one belonging to his brother. It’s not reminiscing that brings him there. The local priest had filed a complaint in an effort to chop the tree down due to its… abnormal nature.
A dead tree.
That – somehow – still grows.
You can find the game here: The Tree of Life [Itch].
Playtime is just a few minutes, and I’m interested in any and all feedback. I thank anyone and everyone that takes an interest, and hope you enjoy.
