[LONGFORM PROJECTS]

Event Horizon lost birds CLOSEDLOOP Protocol
There are two possibilities about this universe: either we are alone, or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. Perhaps it was best we did not know -- the Solar System bears the scars of a conflict that bled it dry. From the graveyards, humanity rises triumphant. From the shadows, rumors of a second war, the return of the Enemy, a war to end all wars. A doomed crew embarks unto the unknown to stop it, or die trying. Hope is persistent; the world has been ended in a terrible, fatal cascade and yet -- life remains, as determined and strange and wonderful as ever. From blood-soaked soils, wildflowers grow. You have crawled from your grave, from the rubble of the old world. You seek the end -- revenge, closure, apocalypse. You are a good Citizen. The Corporation and City treat you well. The days blur together. You do your job, sit in your cubicle and follow the prompts on screen as the days blur together. The days blur together and your hands are bloody. The days blur together and you swear you have lived this exact day before. The days blur together and there is no escape. You are the first, last, and only crewman aboard Observatory Station Calypso-54414d. Everything you know is a lie.

COMING SOON
Event Horizon (Legacy) By Starlight
A legacy version of Event Horizon with old writing (circa 2020-2021). This game does not receive updates, may be bugged, and as such I do not recommend playing the game. It has been published and remains published due to demand. Humanity spreads its glorious might across the galaxy; we have never known peace nor prosperity like that we harvest from the stars. You, on the other hand, are an unemployed cargo pilot two months behind on your rent. The job offer on your desk is a promise: a crew of outlaws and revolutionaries, conspiracy at the fringes of the galaxy, the gala of the century, the heist of a lifetime.
Features three branching timelines -- stories within an overarching story -- cosmic horror elements, and meaningful choices with permanent, unforgiving consequences. 149k words.

Genre: science fiction, horror

[prototypes and experiments]

30x30's Twine Template ATLAS PLACEHOLDER PLACEHOLDER
A custom UI template that was created for use in CLOSEDLOOP, Paraenesis, The Revenant's Lament, and others. Designed to display dense text in a sleek, simple, and almost infinitely adaptable manner. Succession is a long process. In nature, a thing that takes many years. Our sciences have accelerated the pace; that is the purpose of science as a whole; to advance, to create, to hasten. To hope and dream. We believe in better futures for dead worlds. Thus, ATLAS, sibling program to CALYPSO, long distant ancestor to NYX. We are no longer looking for life; we are creating it.
Includes: main menu screen template, body text template, choice text and button template, toggleable in-game menu, custom save and settings menus with a light/dark mode toggle and font size toggle.

Genre: asset pack, resources

Last Updated: 12/2/2023

Status: Awaiting Update

ATLAS was created as part of my undegraduate thesis. Contact for paper.

Features random generation of events ranging from natural disaster sparking secondary succession to meetings with diplomats, resource management gameplay -- carefully guide your planet to climax-stage ecosystems lush and rich with plant and animal life or drive it to ruin, educational information -- all events are based in real-life scientific concepts and ideas, and a glossary, providing further context to the concepts found in each event.
