Portrait of Braiden, the protagonist of A Game of Cards.

There are still plans to update this game with more events!
Last updated: November 2020.

A world-weary detective winds down for another evening at the bar by himself. A wrench is thrown into his plans when a stranger suddenly approaches him, supposedly looking for nothing but a friendly conversation.


A Game of Cards is a narrative game created in Twine featuring several branching options.

This short interactive fiction game features the following:

  • Multiple endings dependent on the player’s chosen demeanour throughout the story
  • Dialogue-heavy interactions with branching options and resulting events
  • Depiction of a queer (MLM) relationship between original characters; a transgendered detective on his last case before his resignation and a charismatic stranger who has taken an interest in him

Really well written! solid dialog and choices, set the scene so well. thanks for the lovely read.

how many endings are there? any workthroughs? I think LI has some secret but I can't find it

Hello! Sorry for the belated response!

There are 4 endings as of now dependant on your affection levels and which choice you make at the end. There are a few secrets, but as of now the 4 endings are all there are. I will say there are plans to eventually (tm) get more content involving these characters and this world out there.

Thanks so much for playing!

If you don't mind answering, how many endings are there? I've only managed to get three of them

I'm so upset I've never found this game sooner! The character designs are great and kudos for the amazing writing :) The game has simplistic but appealing layout and honestly, I cant wait for more to come...

i found the game entertaining i like the designs and i am excited to see more 

also i think there should be a way to speed up the text it tends to linger with out progression for a tad bit too long

I LOVED it! I want to get the other endings as well~ This was really good!
