A game that I wanted to test my capabilities on Twine with. I'm only just doing this to learn, story is there though for anyone interested.
The year is 2077, October.
You and your sister, Anna, gain free entry into Vault 63. Built under the heart of Chicago. The apocalypse is soon upon the world and the vault is sealed. With you and almost 1000 other dwellers.
Vault 63's plan for the continuation of humanity involves a year of basic training for all vault dwellers. Then all must enter hibernation chambers to preserve the minuscule resources the vault has. Two hundred years of hibernation, then the Vault Blast Doors would open, letting the vault dwellers restart society outside.
Well, at least that's what the inhabitants of Vault 63 were made to believe.
You wake up two hundred years later, as intended, but to a seemingly abandoned Vault 63. Where are the inhabitants, why is the Vault abandoned, why were you left behind, where is your sister, and why are you in a body not of your own?
None yet. Theres barely any choices! You don't need a walkthrough.
I enjoyed the game. Sure it is not yet finished, and perhaps it would need some rethinking of certain parts, to make it more coherent. But I like the ideas, I liked the introduction part taking longer, and to get into the mood. Also the dreams are nicely done, like some kind of avantgarde poems.
Spoiler Alert: What I would rethink is to add some additional computer logs about the various experiments fertility. In theory the C would implicate a higher fertility rate with less month of pregnancy, but I am not sure that all of the others would have planned to be infertile as it was all about repopulating the wastes, no? Of course they might ended up infertile after all, but would be nice to clear the aims or rsults up on the notes.
I am looking forward the updates anyway.
So I'm in the representative part, and chose not to take jet, but after flirting with either group there is nothing. It's just black. Any reason at all?
I enjoyed this but it need an update or a few, some simple stuff needs to be solved, such as, i played dumb in the interrogation scene but in the first mission isabella said that i ratted her out, also i had the switchblade and pistol from the storage room, but after leaving the vault you lose both without any reason also, i really want to see more OR see this turned into an actual game with pictures and all, it would be fun
... I don't understand why is this game so highly ranked.
I mean, yeah yeah, story is average or at least not as bad as the others... but that's it? We get a half assed protagonist and a lame city? I feel disappointed. If I watned to read fanfiction I would have gone to Fanfiction.net, I came here to play text based erotic games.
I've never felt so disappointed before...
I don't really have an opinion on this in general. It seems decent enough for its content.
I felt I should warn people of a very specific sort of thing though:
If you have a little sister that you adore, or are particularly emotional about family, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT play this game. I usually disassociate myself fairly well, but I was seeing red.
In a proper Fallout game I could pick up a gun and shoot every last bastard there in the head. It may be difficult, I may need to reload a lot, but I'd get it done.
Don't take this as a negative review - again, this is a very narrow case where I became extremely uncomfortable. Even in a fictional context it's hard for me to sit and watch "my" family getting abused and being powerless to stop it, especially since I have a powerful and close relationship with a younger sibling.
