Single-player interactive fiction from indie developer Subject Matter


Written by on

Developed by


Don’t Be Dinner is an interactive piece of fiction based on branching story lines using simple dialogue trees. The game follows a knight as he ventures into a dark forest one night to confront the one thing standing between him and ultimate glory…and it wants to talk.

Story paths are determined by the character chosen, his motivations, and the player’s dialog choices. The conversation with the troll centers around each character’s story and ultimate goal.

With 45 different endings, whether you are trying to save the princess or prove yourself as an archer, each decision you make is crucial; it will bring you one step closer to ultimate success…or one step away from an untimely death.

Don’t Be Dinner is being developed with the Unity engine and will be released on Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile platforms. Release date is TBD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
