SLEEP/WORK/MONEY

I made another little Twine poem. This one’s particularly small and unintelligible because I’ve been so tired due to events spanning the last couple of days that I couldn’t physically produce anything longer or more coherent. So, instead, I have a couple of incomplete attempts at work to finish for the upcoming month, and for […]


WOW

A Haiku for Bad Developers

I’ve put together a Twine poem-game-thing (I’m still not even convinced of the nomenclature for the things I’m making, to be honest with you), that makes extensive use of Darius Kazemi’s “Random Words” macro. This one’s a little simpler than the other two of this late-November digital poetry series, in part because it was made […]


Winter is for Mourning People

Here’s the second in my small series of game poems. It’s a villanelle! Sort of. It loosely follows the structure of one but I’ve definitely taken a few liberties in terms of foot, rhyme and meter.

It’s open to anyone and everyone who has been, is […]


Black Square on Whitespace

Black Square on Whitespace is a Twine piece inspired by Kazimir Malevich’s painting, “Black Square,” featured in my previous post. There are no links, but hovering your cursor over the text will make it disappear. Many thanks to Leon Arnott for providing the macros I used and for his superhero-like willingness to answer my annoying […]

Game Industry Mad Libs

This week’s week’s post comes to you in humble Twine form. Too many sensations, scandals, faux-pas and turpitudes have cropped up since I wrote my last piece. So, instead of writing a response or analysis, I decided to do something a little more fun and a little more cathartic. Below are 16 headlines describing vague—but […]
