When I read Invisible Cities, I felt like I could see myself in the descriptions of the cities, and also in Marco Polo. When I play Invisible Games, I feel like I have played all of these games. In both cases, I'm right but also wrong, and so this is very good.


"Every game I describe for you unravels more of myself to you."

I lack the language to describe exactly why this game is so successful at what it does. I suspect it has to do with the "implied game" you're meant to play, inferred from the context of being on a game site and so on.


This is the best Italo Calvino fanfiction Twine ever written.
