C:\User\█████> "1181 is a twine inspired by the fermi paradox, cosmic horror, and isaiah 34:14."

This twine is over 6,666 words long, containing 147 passages, 171 links, and multiple endings. It's best played in fullscreen, so please give that a try!

Gail (@notgojira) did the tremendous job of programming this behemoth, figuring out its scripts, and providing its visuals (plus writing a certain exchange near the end) while I wrote the rest. We finished it in ten days for #fermijam, and it was a ton of fun! This was also Gail's first game jam!!!

CONTENT WARNING: there is one potential instance (visually depicted) of unsettling eyeball imagery (though not eye trauma) toward the end of the game.

❝ Her nobles shall be no more, nor shall kings be proclaimed there; all her princes are gone. Her castles shall be overgrown with thorns, her fortresses with thistles and briers. She shall become an abode for jackals and a haunt for ostriches. Wildcats shall meet with desert beasts, satyrs shall call to one another; There shall ███████ repose, and find for herself a place to rest. Look in the book of the █████ and read: No one of these shall be lacking, For the mouth of the █████ has ordered it, and ███████ spirit shall gather them there. It is ██████ who casts the lot for them, and with ██████ hands He marks off their shares of her; They shall possess her forever, and dwell there from generation to generation...
