For my project, I initially had a lot of trouble coming up with ideas. I couldn’t come up with a concept interesting enough to become a game. Eventually I decided to create a hypertext story using Twine. Simple Reality is a simple story based on a short personal free-write about a busy life that many college students juggle. There is no definite form – no well defined poetics or fancy prose – it is just meant to be simple, relatable, realistic, understandable, somewhat interesting. Twine seemed like a good way to give a really simple story some sort of creative depth. After considering various project ideas and platforms, I became most understanding of Twine and it just seemed to be the right choice for me.
