Twine: Making These Plateaus Hypertextual

I am currently experimenting with Twine. Here is my first attempt at doctoring the sentences of a plateau from this site into a Twine game.

I am really interested in seeing how you are finding the way that these sections work as a my intricate hypertext interplay!

  1. I’ve only quickly looked at the Twine/Spahr thingy. It is very interesting to read your thoughts in this way. But I fear I’m much too old for such a snazzy experience…. The young kids will probably go mad for this much cool, though.

    • I feel like you’re definitely not old enough to say things like “The young kids will probably go mad for this much cool”… Honestly, Andy! It’s hypertext. People have been doing hypertext for twenty years.

      I like the hypertext model because it really becomes “thoughts about a text” rather than “I’m making one giant point that you need to agree with in the end.” I wonder if it’s too fragmentary, though.

      And, if you want to get to know hypertext (for you and anyone else who reads this and wants to know), my favourite work is Michael Joyce’s afternoon, a story. You can read it here.
