I recently started experimenting with Twine, an open-source tool for telling nonlinear, interactive stories. So basically like a Choose Your Own Adventure / text adventure hybrid. People with very little coding background (like me) can very easily make logic-based games.

So I made Lorem Ipsum, the copywriting game.

In it, you play a copywriter assigned the simple task of writing headlines for "Lunchytimes", the snackable anytime lunch snack. However, it is not so simple as you think. Or maybe it is. Either way, you have one day to finish your work without losing your health, dignity, creativity, sobriety or sanity. Easier said than done. And remarkably accurate to working in advertising.
