Courtesy of the second Indie Speed Run, hundreds of free games have poured onto the Internet. A Salty Lass (playable above) is a choose your own adventure made for the competition that plays out through YouTube and even contains some annotated quick-time-events, where you must click hastily to avoid a bad ending. The premise is that two people are enjoying a picnic, until one of them spills salt. Curses!
"Salt" and "cursed" happen to be the two variables the dev team Wren Pirates had to work with. What follows is an adventure through the forests of San Francisco to rid the two of the curse, where you eventually meet a helpful druid with fabulous fashion sense.
The rest of the adventure is up to you to choose.
