Review – Something

Something is one in a series of short twine games drawn from the pages of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, whichever edition number they’re now up to. I can’t say that this subgenre really floats my boat, but it must have some appeal because these works keep showing up in IFcomps.

[Some spoilers follow beyond this point]

In this story, the reader has a brief glimpse of the world through the eyes of someone who shows signs of obsessive-compulsive behavior and recurrent disruptive thought processes. The condition is severe enough to affect daily living for the main character, but up to this point she believes that others are not aware of the severity of her condition.
