Fuck That Noise, made in Twine for the One Game a Month challenge, is an interactive guide to deciding whether or not you should go to law school, and how to get there. Ok, really it is just a pissy little takedown of the whole process of applying for law school, but it takes the form of a guide.
For the record, I have now been accepted to a number of schools, and I am feeling much better about the whole thing, but I started writing this game when I was really hating the process, so that’s where the tone comes from.
I made this as catharsis and also to force myself to learn some of the style features of Twine that I did not utilize in my first Twine game. I was counting on fonts to get some of my points across, but then I found out that only a select few fonts are universal, which resulted in a lot of changes. But that’s the learning process, I guess. Criticisms are welcome and appreciated
Anyway, if you have a second, you can play the game in your browser by clicking the link above. When you make choices in the game, try to resist the urge to go backwards, as you’ll get some repeat content that way. And remember - there are many ways to lose, but you can win any time you want.
Fuck yeah Shawn.
