Peanut Butter Toast

An interactive fiction about insomnia and late night snacking.

The preparation of sourdough begins with a pre-ferment (the "starter" or "leaven", also known as the "chief", "chef", "head", "mother" or "sponge"), a fermented mixture of flour and water, containing a colony of microorganisms including wild yeast and lactobacilli.

Really interesting and visually beautiful game. I was unsure how much control I really had, but I felt like I chose peanut butter and jam somehow. The movement from screen to screen was very pretty if sometimes a little disorientating. It had a non-Euclidian vibe, because you were going back over the same 'locations' but seeing different things. The breath noises were a little unsettling at first. Story wise it felt quite realistic and raw, and I was happy that the character's sleeping improved, although I don't feel like I came away liking Thomas. I felt like the person he was sending messages too didn't really seem to want to talk to him anymore. But they started to again out of pressure and pity. Regardless, I think the game is clever and inventive and beautiful. Great job!
