How It Begins

Notable Features

  • Unusual platform. This work is meant to be played within the Inform 7 program that authors normally use to write a work, so the source code and the interactive game are visible side-by-side.
  • Two protagonists. One protagonist is a woman in a surreal geography made of fears. The other protagonist is a man in the source code's comments, reading the source code as if it was the woman's blog posts.
  • Meaningful geography shape. A map of the woman's fears resembles the shape of a human brain viewed from the side.
