Those Days

A character-driven interactive fiction piece about childhood memories.


Those Days is a character-driven interactive fiction piece about childhood memories, forgotten friendships and emotional health. It was first published as part of the 2021 Spring Thing Festival of Interactive Fiction.

The game is a lot more linear than most choice-based interactive fiction pieces, with only two different endings and a limited number of ways for the player to affect the overarching narrative. The few choices that are offered to the player affect character relationships in the second half of the piece. Interactive elements are predominantly used to project tone and control the pacing of the piece.

Those Days was developed using Twine.
