Scope Creep


The following is an interactive short story written by Paul Rocca.

The code is written from scratch, using an interactive narrative API, also written from scratch.

The hope is, with further development, this can can provide a proof-of-concept of an interactive narrative framework in Javascript, similar to what you may find in more elaborate UIs like Twine.

If you like the story, please drop me a line at paul(at)!

Though the story is intended to be self-contained, it's really only the first part of a larger narrative, so expect developments in the future!
