Author: Todd Watson
Genre: Science fiction / mythological
"Unraveling God" has a provocative plot involving a mix of science and
religion, as well as the self-destructive pursuit of fame above all else.
Unfortunately, there were two reasons that the game didn't draw me in.
First, the story was incredibly brief, even for a competition entry.
This is especially true since it is effectively a very linear puzzleless
game. Second, you play the bad guy. You play the fiend who sits back and
watches a young man die just so you can take credit for his discovery.
The game effectively boils down to the choice at the end, but at that
point in the game I just didn't feel pulled into the story enough to
really care which one I picked. The fact that it was a no-win situation
didn't help matters. Technically, I didn't see any glaring problems with
the game, and I think that if the author had maybe fleshed out the story a
bit, this game could have earned a higher score.
