Starborn is a short interactive fiction work that tells the story of a protagonist who has lived his entire life in space, yearning to visit the planet called Earth that he has only heard about but never truly visited.
Juhana had designed the game to be extremely accessible for everyone. Every keyword that you need can be found in the descriptive text, and you can bring up a summary of the available keywords in any location by pressing the L key. This eliminates all of the guesswork often required in most other interactive fiction games, and you can just immerse yourself in the story without worrying about getting stuck or trying to figure out what the developer wants you to do next.
Starborn takes about five to ten minutes to play through. (source: C.E.J. Pacian)
