“Why aren’t you in bed yet?” she asked.
I laughed. “I’m playing shit snake” I told her.
She didn’t laugh. In fact, she started to cry. She asked why I valued shit snake more than our relationship.
I found it odd that she didn’t ask what shit snake was in the first place. “You should ask what shit snake is” I said.
She didn’t laugh. In fact, she ran out and slammed the door, like in some dramatic fashion or something like that.
“Shit.” I said.
The snake was strangely apathetic.

One of my games killed a relationship. It’s not everyone who can say that.

The excellent writing in the comment above was inspirational: I knew that I had to create an interactive fiction game based on the story.

I am not opposed to making more Shit Snake games in the future, provided I can think of an idea which is equally distinct from the first two entries in the series. I also have a few ideas for other Shit Games, including Shit Tetris. These probably won’t get made, but I can’t say that for sure…
