STATION IDENT 052613
Hi there. How are you?
Just dropping a line to let you know I"m still lurking. And still writing. I didn't forget about you! But it has been terrifically busy.
I have a short story - two, actually! - being published in a cool zine format which I'll let you know more about as soon as it breaks.
I've been putting some effort into doing a little world-building for a work project.
And - I made a game! Okay, well really I've only spent today on it. I'm practicing in twine. This is my very first interactive fiction creation!
It's nothing special - mostly I'm teaching myself to operate and understand the logic behind conditional branching pathways, and seeing what I can accomplish with that. It's got too much complicated crap in it for a beginner project, and I think the next one I do will be simpler. Also, it could use some pictures and music to jazz it up! But it was fun, and I learned a lot!
There are some rough edges and I may have missed a few bugs, but it seems reasonably stable. Have a look and tell me what you think when you get a chance. Pitch me an idea for another one, if you like!
Play Cyclic Dream
Oh, here's a soundtrack for it, if you like that sort of thing. Enjoy your weekend.
