The Thirst Frontier.

http://checkers.storynexus.com/s

This is a story of loneliness and friendship, obsession and release, curiosity and laziness. It was inspired by a road trip I took around Australia with my husband and kids.

It doesn't entirely adhere to Storynexus' usual model and suffers for this, in places. I wanted to see if I could use the tool to realise my idea, rather than use the model to inspire an idea.

Thanks for playing. All feedback very welcome.

Um...sorry for the three year necropost (do people still play this anymore?) but oh my goodness I love this game so much. Perhaps a little too much? I'm unnaturally obsessed with this game. I just love it so much, especially the atmosphere, but I love everything about it in general, and I could go on...
Uh, yeah...that's it. Just wanted to say how much I love it.

It´s sad. What happened to Checkers almost made me cry. I wish there were a bit more choices but this is just...this story gives me a lonely feeling.

So this game.

This is the game that will haunt me to my grave. I played it for the first time, what? Four, five years ago? And it's still the kind of thing that now, at 5am when I can't sleep, I think about. Hell, if you google 'The Thirst Frontier', that shitty Wattpad poem that comes up on the first page? That was me, back in my artsy poetry phase, obsessed with this game. Me writing this now? Still obsessed. Me three-ish years ago? So obsessed with this game I created a twine fan-made 'sequel' that was nonsensical as anything, but the only chance I felt I had at exorcising my love of this game.

This game is frustrating, terrifying, touching, and moving all at once. I have never felt so disorientated by a game, and at once so connected to it. I honestly cannot express how grateful I am to have been able to play, and come back to, this stunning piece of media.

(p.s. to anyone who wants to mock me, the 'fan sequel' I made can be found here: https://dumbpretentions.neocities.org/TTF.html )

Maybe it's just because I love the original game so much, but I actually really liked this sequel. I got stuck on the code, though.

Edit: Oooh, I just got the code. Clever! Though I feel like the number was a little obscure.

I love your game and sent two feedbacks during this weekend expressing such. The last one contained a bug report, hope you got it.

Some spoilers.

[spoiler]
I got Skirts/suits up to Tight, with 3 extra connected boosts after that, from flirting. Didn't use the quality once. Purportedly. Was hoping for some recognition among them.

I agree on the abrupt ending; I thought going home on my first playthrough was going to end it, and it did, but I really expected something else with the permanent stay with Freefall. Even a little area where I can roam around and "work" or something, and then choose to END_GAME when I'm ready. Same for home. Maybe mom makes me that cherry pie or whatever it was, if my connections were Homesick.

Nothing you can or even should do about it, but I am so sad that I followed Checkers into the room. I wanted to sleep with him and love him and whatever. :{

You melted my heart when you, during a call to mum, gave me a gender. I had imagined myself male, because, you know. And then I was female. It put a different spin on some things, for me, suddenly. Very nice.

[/spoiler]

Anyway, I totally loved your world. I'm glad you didn't use the deck feature. There were points where I -- in my three playthroughs -- fullscreened the browser window, put on some light ambient music, and sat in your world for a half-hour. Just loved it. Second only to EBZ, and my list of finished SN games is lengthy.
