Vigilante is my first try at interactive fiction.
It takes place during a protest gone wrong. It follows the player as they develop super powers, save their friend and deal with the aftermath.

Please be okay.“Danny!” you shout, skidding to a stop and dropping to your knees, “Are you okay?

You take a deep breath, close your eyes and focus on the hazy feeling in your head.
