Narrative hypertext game: “Horse Master”
by look i have opinions
“Horse Master” (version 2.01), written in Twine 1.4.2 by Tom McHenry
Copyright 2013, playable at the creator’s website
I can’t find an easy way to do a word count on a Twine game, but the file is 179 kilobytes; if it were a straight-up prose piece, my guess is that it would run to 4,000 words
I haven’t written much about games and game writing before now. This one is worth playing/reading. The ending varies, but (spoilers!) it is consistently bleak and painful.
