Write or Drink

An Interactive Fiction Experiment.

I built this game (really more of a brief experimental, interactive fiction of the choose-your-own-adventure variety) using Twine, which bills itself as an “open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories.” The interface was intuitive and the execution was quick.

You can download the results, Write or Drink? at interactive game hosting platform Itch.io (where Twiny Jam submissions are hosted). Like me, you might find it’s a difficult choice…

Meanwhile, at the bar… Daedalus Howell’s down and out reporter mulls the contents of an empty notebook… and a glass. This html-based choose-your-own-adventure story opens in your browser and encourages you to explore the mind-wiping infinitude of a Lumaville tavern.

I explore the creative life as a storyteller, artist, and entrepreneur. I’m the writer-director of Pill Head and the forthcoming feature film Wolf Story. I’m also the author, most recently, of the novel Quantum Deadline, and am active in media (Bohemian, Pacific Sun). Learn how I went from small-town newspaperman to a feature film director here.
