Note: I received a review copy from the author but this doesn't impact my opinion.

An exploration of consent and BDSM and polyamory outside of sex, an interactive conversation about trust and love and magic.

This game is absolutely stunning and a lovely introduction to the world of interactive fiction for those who, like me, had no previous experience with it. I shouldn't say too much as it's best to find out the plot and characters on your own. I just 100% recommend it (and it makes a nice pride

Polyamory and lots of consent negotiation! I loved this, and I hope there will be a continuation sometime. I was expecting a little more choices to be honest, but it was still enjoyable, and the characters and descriptions were soft and warm like a hug, like most of RoAnna's work. ...more

Sadly, I didn't think this worked as an interactive story. It took too long to get to any kind of branching path. I wanted to get more control over the story early on, to get to put myself into it and really be present within it. Especially given that one of the story's themes is consent, I expected more meta-interaction, where the reader/player and the story are in conversation and you get to really shape the direction of things. As it was, the narration felt like the touch of the young man enc ...more

I've never read an interactive story before. The closest I got was Always Human, and now I think about it, the two story types are absolutely nothing alike apart from that I read them both online and clicked onto the next page each time...

Apparently I'm a troglodyte when it comes to reading. I'm not sure that interactive fiction is something that's for me (largely because of the second person premise), but I love RoAnna's writing, and I would happily read anything by them and so put my hand str

Needless to say just looking at the rating you can tell I loved this, but the why is something interesting. Interactive fiction games have a reputation as a choose your own adventure style of storytelling which The Three-Body Problem really isn't but it in no way suffers from that. There's a pretty set path that the storyline follows and there's one central choice the player is asked to make, which allows full exploration into the main theme: the role of consent.

RoAnna lives with family near Portland, OR, and probably spends too much time playing videogames. The next adventure RoAnna would like i
