The inspiration here is quite simple actually. FTL: Faster Than Light. A fantastic little game that, while seemingly simplistic, pulls you in so far.
The premise is simple:
You are a starship carrying vital information that will save the Federation. You are being chased by the Rebels who are destroying the peaceful government.
What makes the game so moving is a combination of music and short little textboxes that pop up during certain actions. It is such a simple setup but the simplicity is what makes it so moving! I fully love this little game and play for hours. I heavily recommend it.
TANGENT. Anyways. I thought, why not right a simple little story that reflects the basic ideas of a little game that brings me so much joy? Hence, "Alone" happened.
Goodness, the description is always such a mess!
To be hones though, I hated doing this. I love flowing sentences and ideas and thoughts into one chaotic meld of a thousand words. Of course, it is a pain to read sometimes and worse to edit but limiting my word count and having to fit it is hard!
I hope you liked the story. It is quite a bit shorter than my others so perhaps it may be a little easier on the eyes.
Any comments or critiques are welcome!
