Hi! I finished my final project and I’m really happy with it. I created an interactive fiction, Follow Your Breadcrumbs, where you can follow Hansel and Gretel as they play a video game. I won’ spoil anything but I really got inspired by the Terms and Conditions section of the class and how our social media tracks us. On that note, I hope you enjoy the game.
Alright, if you decided to come back after playing the game and wanted a bit of the behind the scenes, welcome back. Thank you for taking the time to play my game. I had a little bit of trouble finishing the game because I had a migraine for three days in a row but I still think it turned out alright. That being said, let’s get into it.
When I first created the game, I knew I wanted to connect it to the Web but I wasn’t sure how. I then thought of what we did this semester and thought about our rebuild the internet projects. That got me thinking on how I could incorporate that into this new project. As I was writing the script, I thought of how I could make the character become part of the game and then it hit me, terms and conditions. I looked back at my parody and knew I could connect the two ideas this way. I just thought it was fun how all four endings have the character staying in the game. Anyway, hope you liked this sneak peak into how I created this.
