The Picnic: A Love Story

Milo and his beloved Jezabel are enjoying a lovely picnic in the park. After they finish, Jezabel comes up with the bright idea of starting a fire before nightfall. This is the story of their undying devotion and love. NOTE: This is less a game and more of an interactive story. I wanted to experiment with making a short story since I mostly focus on game mechanics in my work. You must use a keyboard to play. Google Chrome is the recommended browser for play.
