Ariadne in Aeaea  (IFComp entrant, 2016)

fofrmato-jgpeg

Isle of Aeaea, the eastern Aegean. 3,500 years ago.

In the northern wastes, the Achaeans have a new and warlike chieftain. Palace after palace is falling to his armies. On the shores of Crete, the Minoan civilisation awaits at the eve of extinction. At her sanctuary of Aeaea, the cunning Circe struggles to coordinate a political counteroffensive… And somewhere in the sticks, a young Minoan priestess named Ariadne wakes up to a hangover of mythological proportions.

Ariadne in Aeaea is a parser-based interactive fiction created as a prologue to my upcoming game Mistress of the Labyrinth. It presents the titular Ariadne two years before the epic events of MOTL, when she was still a novice priestess.

  • Play as the mythical Ariadne, a young Minoan priestess with other things in mind.
  • Explore the Isle of Aeaea, Circe’s sanctum – and meet the High Priestess herself.
  • A light-hearted story of espionage, politics and debauchery in the Bronze Age.

So say your prayers to the Goddess, reign in your hangover and play it here.
