Play This Only At Night is a short piece of interactive fiction set in the world of Shoot The Gift, a playset for the tabletop RPG AGON, created by John Harper and Sean Nitter. It's inspired by YA dystopian fiction, and Hip Hop. In a dystopian future where cities are ruled by corporate CEOs-turned despots, and most of the lands outside of them are irradiated wastes, you live in one of the few villages controlled by its community rather than the iron fist of a City Lord. One day your village, Hangar 9, is visited by a special shaman that has come to give you a gift....

This was a great interactive taste of a world I want to know more about. Checked out all the items, chose the cans in the end. 1/1 would play again as it expands.

Atmospheric and evocative. A treat to read and experience.

Thank you so much for checking it out! I'm hoping to do a little more with it/the world at some point, I'll be sure to keep you posted.
