STAINED GLASS

A short interactive narrative in which every decision leads to a different outcome...

You are corporate lawyer Michael Anderson, a young graduate of an ivy league university. You’re doing well in your job and you have a beautiful wife with whom you are building a home. Your only disappointment is that your wife Jenny is unable to conceive a child, a child that you desperately want. Other than this, your life is perfect, and perfectly mundane—until you receive an unexpected text message from the secret society you joined when you were in college. The society has been watching you. They want to make you an offer, an offer that could change your life. All you have to do is make a choice...

Created as part of my MA, this short web-based interactive narrative has four possible outcomes.
