Apocalypse Now: Chapter 1

I hope to flesh out what I have here and create chapter 2 for the final, but I’m (albeit all of the frustrations) pretty happy with what I ended up with. From reading and experimenting with many other Inform7 projects created this semester, I share sentiments with nearly everyone. It is incredibly difficult to get things to work exactly the way…

Lessons From Making E-Lit

My Creative Project, UMW Odyssey, was nothing what I expected, but I am satisfied nonetheless that I created a game with a beginning and an end. Computer programming is not my skill in this life, so I’m impressed that I was able to do some of the things I did with the help of online guides for Inform 7. It…

Creative Project: Skin

For the creative project, I used Scratch to create a digital poem animation titled Skin. Very much influenced by RedRidinghood, I wanted to experiment with another fairytale, and the influence of control. That last bit bears explaining. In Skin each scene is accessed by reader input, a star appears, the user clicks it, the next scene runs all its lines…

Respecting the Authors of Elit

I chose Inform 7 for my creative project because the idea of a text adventure fascinates me.  Playing Colossal Cave Adventure for class was my first experience with a text adventure game, and I absolutely loved it.  It surprised me.  It is such a seemingly simple game, with only words to convey the story and world that you are interacting…

You have to start somewhere…

I was personally pretty satisfied with the final version of my Creative Project “Simple Reality“. Most of all, I was extremely impressed with the fact that I was able to successfully create a piece of “electronic literature” – a field of literature I still consider myself brand-new to, never having considered creating  my own since I didn’t really know what,…

About Amnion

People often talk of rebirth, or finding themselves born again. But how deep does the phoenix go? Where is the cutoff point when it is no longer an option, and who’s to say? As the title suggests, a huge theme within Amion, my creative project, is rebirth. A little background first. Originally, Amnion started out as an untitled assignment in…

Run from the Zombies

Here is my creative project, http://playfic.com/games/ashleyohhh7/run-from-the-zombies   I chose to create my project through inform 7, because after seeing other examples in class I felt it was the platform I could most easily navigate.  I needed to start out with a simple idea, people trapped in a house. But why were they trapped? I admit I fell into a bit…

Creative Project- Using Synfig & Pencil

First and foremost, here’s my project. I chose to do an animation simply because I have done quite a bit of work in interactive fiction and hypertext prior to this course.  I have made several choose your own adventures in the past, and as the requirements state, we’re supposed to try something outside of our comfort zone.  I have made…

Creating a creative project.

Before we began looking at the different programs used to make electronic literature, it never once occurred to me how much time and effort needs to be dedicated to making even the simplest form of electronic literature. As I began creating my own project using Inform 7, I quickly realized how difficult the task of creating a text adventure could…

Murder So Sweet

I went with Inform 7 for my creative project, if only because a text adventure game allowed me to do what I wanted with the story I had in mind.  After a two day battle of epic proportions trying to get a flashlight to work in game, I almost regret that decision.  Almost.  I think I was successful, though.  Hopefully. …
