Endling

The time and data storage are limited. I cannot leave you comprehensive records of everything destroyed by time. Instead, I have tried to open your eyes to the gravity of what you have lost, so you can build great new things to lose.

Exams are largely over. I am catching up with unplayed IF and what a pleasure it is.

This is from Endling by Kazuki Mishima.

At first it seems like it doesn’t work. “Load configuration file?” Well, okay, once I figured out how to start a game, it seemed like a database of little factoids, seemingly unrelated to each other. Then there were the notes by the author… And the line between what was really from the author and what was from the narrator blurred.

Even though there is no story in the traditional sense of the word, even though it basically is a bunch of factoids, it was still oddly moving.
