Spirit of the wood

This is a short Twine game where you play from the perspective of a woodland protective spirit. I wanted to put something small together thinking about the idea of how nature and man interact.

The game has 3 endings, which you can play through each fairly quickly. The writing style aimed to keep things fairly brief so there isn't mountains of reading to get through!

This was also a good opportunity to refamiliarize myself with the process of uploading a Twine game onto newgrounds and the quirks involved!

You did a good job, making the story feel just a little bit like it wasn't being told from a human perspective.
You removed the scroll-bar from the interface, and had many pages that MUST be scrolled; I hate that design decision, fortunately Newgrounds didn't go crazy over my use of the arrow-keys to scroll the story though. I literally clicked all over the opening image looking for the start button before I tried the arrow-keys.

I like it. :)

I especially like how the hasty minimalism of the lines makes the story feel sort of alien, like a series of thoughts running through a mind that works differently than a human being's.

Yeah it was definitely an interesting process trying to experiment with a different perspective. Glad you liked it - Hoping to have a few more games out soon, one of them is planned to build on this.

Simple and done right for what it is.

Very interesting, but well done.
I especially enjoyed (my) last ending: invoking the special dual role one must play of hunter & conservator.
