...I was hoping to release this after I published a personal project, but that didn't pan out, so here you go...

This is one half of a school project I did with a partner. We both made separate stories using Twine and combined them into one file. This is an edited version of my half of the project; I cleaned up (hopefully all of) the spelling errors.

This interactive story is less awkward than "Minds are Dumb, People are Smart" but that doesn't say much. In it, you play someone who travels across time to explore various points of his life in order to solve the mystery of whatever the heck is going on in unknown place. It's inspired by "Slaughterhouse-Five" by Kurt Vonnegut and "Moonlight" by Jonas Kyratzes, I hope you like it!

Sorry, but the story and the end is kinda..... stupid.
Beautiful idea but I would have carried it out differently.

Haha, that explains his engineering son working on his butt!

At first, I really was having a hard time navigating through the menus, and there wasn't any kind of coherent process of jumping back and forth, but once I saw a majority of the menus, it made a lot more sense. Once I was able to view certain windows multiple times, it was much easier to get to where I wanted to go.

I kept thinking that I was supposed to figure out a puzzle, but even after getting to the end, I didn't see how I was ever going to come to that conclusion. Is this a puzzle, or just a journey to the ending?

Also, what was the deal with the "gathering?" Every other storyline had some kind of relevance, except for that part. Not to mention that weird part with the anime and the fetishes. Still confused about exactly what was trying to be said there.

In any case, I ended up enjoying this more than I thought I would, but I wish there was more information that tied everything up together once you got to the end.

Thanks for your review; I'm glad you enjoyed this!

The 'gathering' was one of the points in the story that hinted at what happened at Age 38. It's one of exactly three points in the story you had to get to before unlocking the ending. Besides those three points, there was a bunch of hints about what happened at Age 38. The points before Age 38 were meant to foreshadow some things and set up the ages after Age 38, while the points after Age 38 have somewhat more clear hints as to what happened (For example, pay attention to the exact moment of when the main character dies).

That 'weird part' was put in for some fun and some hinting, and I put in Age 0 to have some more fun and uh... put in some more links

I loved Minds are dumb, people are smart and this is awesome game too. The game itself is little bit too big, but it's great. I love the way I can move in time and remember all the things. It's simply amazing game.
