A short hypertext game about ignorance, defiance, and freedom—or: self-knowledge, acquiescence, and fate. Takes about 15 minutes to play.  There are two significantly-divergent endings, but replays are intentionally discouraged.

Ms. Lojka was exhibited at the 2016 Spring Thing interactive fiction festival, and was selected as a finalist for the 2016 New Media Writing Prize

Some kind words:

"A Work of (Dark) Art… 9/10."
-Jacqueline A. Lott, interactive fiction author and critic
"I can only see this working as the perception of a pathological narrator or a non-literal story of inner exploration. For what it’s worth, it works very well in that capacity."
-Newgrounds review

On the flip side:

"A technical marvel with a disjointed story about identity."
-Math Brush, interactive fiction author and critic
"I don’t understand anything that you’re trying to say through this game. Not a single thing."
-Necessary Games comments
