They were trophies of a backwards civilization, hoarded by a dead man’s creature. Old relics, old sins.Bravemule
Summary: The domovoi is a magnificent story, which sucks you in, lets you create the story, and leaves you lonely afterward. The usage of local terms and things do confuse me from time to time.
Introduction to the game
The Domovoi is a short work of interactive fiction written by Kevin Snow, the creator of Bravemule, with artwork from Patrick Bonaduce and sound from Priscilla White. Your friend, a folk storyteller, has offered to perform her latest work. As her audience, it is your task to advise how her tale should unfold.
This particular tale is plucked from Slavic folklore and if your interest in Slavic folklore is minimal, you could always supply the most inappropriate suggestions possible to derail the storyteller’s flow.
Besides having a well-written story, the game also contains animated images and uses a lot of sound at just the right moments.
It’s a truly beautiful Twine, in which you help your storyteller friend perform their latest work, in a game that’s not merely about forgotten fables and high fantasy, but also about the relationship between storyteller and listeners and the perception of stories. So many options to pick from, such a high interaction grade, combined with the howling wind, it’s like one is really there. The usage of local terms and things do confuse me from time to time, causing me to press the “search google” button a little too often, which does break the flow of the game a little for me, something I stated was so well put.
The domovoi is a magnificent story, which sucks you in, lets you create the story, and leaves you lonely afterward.
