Lori.hThis title is available in Pay What You Want format, including free. If you enjoy this game, please consider paying the developer what you think it's worth!

Of all the mysterious things that could suddenly appear in your apartment and be the cause of worry, a potted plant isn't that high up on the list. But that's because you've never seen a plant like this before. The Ceramic Uncertainty, a Crazy Knuckles Production, is an interactive fiction game about how you deal with such an anonymous gift. With loads of branches to the story, a simple choice can drastically change your narrative from a lighthearted adventure to a daring fight to stay alive with terror possibly around the corner. How it goes depends on which choices you select as you read. With over a 40,000 word count and 80 different endings, this Twine game will for sure show you there is a lot more to this little curious plant than just watering it daily.

The Ceramic Uncertainty was the most fun I ever had reading about a plant. One thing that makes it so great is that there isn't just one story with a few different dead ends to run into. Instead, there is a colorful array of stories each with their own uniqueness. There is also a handy feature up top of a 'back' button where you can turn the pages back and go on a different path without needing to start all over. This makes it much easier and more enjoyable than having to redo all the pages while trying to remember your exact selections from before. The other nice thing is that none of the stories really build off each other. They are their own separate tales so if you don't have much time you can always just play through and feel pleased about your adventure without having to do the others. But with its great humor, alluring strangeness, and its creativity you're going to be very glad you can always save and come back to a new and different tale.

Totally agree with the review of this game, the best piece of IF for a long while.

I've found 5 endings, does anyone have any more?

Spoke too soon, up to 10 now and I'm sure I know of a couple more 'forks in the road' I can take...

Wow, thanks for such a kind review of my game! I just discovered it (a whole week later!) checking the game's recent traffic sources. Glad to hear it was enjoyable :)
