Must-Play Twine Games

Every once in a while I see someone asking for a list of recommended games made with the Twine visual scripting language. Such a list has proven very difficult to find, since only a handful of Twine games have won awards

This list may change as time goes on! Feedback welcome, especially games to add, but I reserve the right to ignore it ┐(︶▽︶)┌

I’m trying to keep the list sleek, so each game has only four elements: title, author, my opinion of the game’s age range, and any prominent content warnings. Occasionally I’ll slip an additional note in, but I’m trying to keep that to a minimum.

Games are grouped by age range but are otherwise in no particular order.
