Write or Drink?

As many of you know, I'm a sucker for crowd-driven writing jags (hence, my annual NaNoWriMo addiction, Wattpad, etc.), so when I learned about Twiny Jam from?BoingBoing today, I leapt-to and began constructing my first interactive text adventure game. As BoingBoing's Laura Hudson teased, "Do you have about an hour? Can you write 300 words? Then you can – and should –make your own text adventure today."

Thus inspired, I built my game (really more of a brief experimental, interactive fiction of the choose-your-own-adventure variety) using Twine, which bills itself as an "open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories." The interface was intuitive and the execution was quick (indeed – about an hour). You can download the results, Write or Drink? at interactive game hosting platform Itch.io (where Twiny Jam submissions are hosted) or play/read it in your browser by clicking here: Write-or-Drink? Like me, you might find it's a difficult choice...
