Based on S. John Ross's Risus RPG, Ring of Thieves is a short but exciting adventure where a thief named Lucas must rescue his companion after an ambushed by a band only recognizable by their gray cloaks. The writing and characterization really drew me into the story. Recommended. Also mentioned in: Play This Thing!
The story takes place in an alternate 1788 France, where the nobles have the power of magic. A story where you rewrite the correspondence of Juliette, her husband Henri, and the others in the story. The fascinating thing about this approach is that this is basically a game about writing - you recompose the story and explore different parts through that rewriting. Worth reading. From the description: Juliette has been banished for the summer to a village above Grenoble: a few Alpine houses, a deep lake, blue sky, and no society. Now she writes daily to her husband. She tells how she went for a walk and ended thigh-deep in mud, how the draft comes in around the window, how extravagantly she has spent on new gloves, how she misses Paris. She plans her letters on ordinary pages, but when they are ready, she copies them on paper whose enchanted double is hundreds of miles off. The words form themselves on the matching sheaf in her husband's study. No time is wasted on couriers.
Journey through a haunting, empty city...in search of who knows what. Inspired by a picture by zdzisław beksiński.

An RPG made in Twine. Download and run; will have to host a version at some point. From the author: One day I'm like "could I make an RPG using twine and some Unicode square charachters to make an overworld? and what if it were like "The Walking Dead? but terrible?" And that's what this is.
My first Twine story, and a test to see what I could get the program to do (considering my minimal coding experience.)
Note: There's quite a bit of writing here already, but this is an introduction and first draft, meant to be for a longer project. See author's note. Once abandoned after a terrible plague, the White City is now home to a new utopian vision and a new generation of inhabitants, and you're one of them. Explore shops and find your way around this new world. From the author: “Sixty years after it was abandoned the White City has been taken under the wing of a new development collective. They’ve remade the city into an urban paradise and beacon of social change with digital currency, urban food forests, and a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence with enough power to run the city for a thousand years. Her name is Edyn and there’s just one problem; they need to test her. Lured by the promise of fame and fortune, the most notorious hackers in the world are invited to come to the new city to test their skills against the ai program and prove whether or not utopia can really exist.”
