Love, Hate and the Mysterious Ocean Tower

For the Speed IF Jacket 4 event...

Love, Hate and the Mysterious Ocean Tower
A brief story of love, romance and cosmic horror.

Originally written in a week, this interactive vignette whisks you through a world where terrible powers and inhuman foes threaten the very existence of humanity - and the only one who can save us is a magnificent bastard in pink trainers.

Since that initial week of work, I've spent some time fleshing the thing out (with plenty of help from my trusty beta-testers). It's still a small game, but the setting is much more fully implemented, and I threw in a few additional endings for good measure.


Love, Hate etc. is available to play in your browser via Parchment.


Or you can download the story file (mirror|random mirror) and run it with a Z-machine interpreter.

See this page for help finding an interpreter. I use Frotz, while others swear by Gargoyle.

This week, seriously. Just want to pass it in front of a couple of testers first.
