Hi guys, I’m really excited to make this post because I’m just overflowing with ideas right now. I’ve been keeping things a little low key this week and, as of right now, I won’t be showing what I’ve been working on. BUT! I will let everyone know a little about what they can/should reasonably expect!
So, we’ve got to tell a story using four mediums and I have a solid idea for three of them. The first two are based in and inspired by writing and web assignments and will utilize Inkle Writer and Inform 7. Now, for those who’re wondering what those are: Inkle Writer is a fairly easy way to create an interactive story that follows different paths that you create along the way. You can loop the story, create “game over” scenarios, include items as prizes, etc. With Inform, there’s much of the same. However, Inkle Writer is much more web-based, while Inform requires a bit of finesse with coding. It follows a technical language that’s a lot more lax than some others (http, Java, C++), but has a specific index of terms and instructions that it understands. Through that, you can create a world and a game, create plot, include items, achievements, goals, you name it. You’re only limited by your own understanding, basically.
The third idea is to take one of my older videos and brush it up a tad. Straightforward, right?
Anyways, so far, my progress has been limited to me starting on the Inform story and creating an outline for my Inkle Writer addition. If you want to see more, though, keep your eyes on my blog for the following week and I’ll surprise you with some cool treats!
Thanks, y’all. BYE!
