Snow, but made of text! Rooms, but made of text! Stairs, but made of text! An elevator, but made of text! You’ll probably die, but made of text! These fragments I have shored against my ruins!

Burnt Matches was written in Twine (1.4.2). It takes inspiration from Into Eternity, directed by Michael Madsen, and inspiration and text from The Wasteland by T. S. Eliot. The game was made as part of a Deep Time jam organised by the Speculative Play project at Concordia University.
