Production 7

Create a Twine (2.0)

Twine is an easy-to-use tool for creating interactive, non-linear narratives/simulations (interactive multimodal stories, poetry, essays, visual novels, simulation games, empathy games, and so on) as well as  narrative games (adventures, role-playing games, etc.), not to mention interactive video and documentary film projects.

Some people create very meta-games (games that explore the conventions of game play and game design).

Twine, as a Web 2.0 pedagogical tool, enables students to design complex digital narratives/research presentations and can be shared beyond the classroom.

This is an open-ended creative production asks you to design and develop a Twine (of any genre, including narrative games and interactive audio-visual fictions or simulation models).

You may also develop ideas from the class session: e.g., a historical simulation/narrative; a speculative historical fiction; alternative reality (counter-factual history) etc etc…

Your twine should include at least some multimodal elements (interactive text, images, animated gifs, background images, and audio clips/sound/music). Your Twine should be long enough to model your understanding of the affordances of the tool, and how this tool can be used to a student/game-designers own purposes.
