Thing-in-Itself Party for Introverts 2017

Ted and Molly are together. Ted feels a connection to Molly wherever he looks. But, how do they both really see the relationship? See each other? This is an interactive short story about the struggles of understanding another human being. Using Immanuel Kant’s concept as a framework, it leads the player through stages of a relationship, exploring how perceptions may clash and surroundings can alter. With an average walkthrough time of 15 minutes, it's not a game in a traditional sense – it doesn’t have win or lose conditions and doesn’t present challenge to the player. With this project, it attempts to establish a connection between the mediums of game and short story, reworking the possibilities when narrative and interactivity merge. Features: Short, impactful interactive story that combines the motifs of German philosophy with a theme of modern relationship; 15-minute walkthrough accompanied by inspired voice acting; Emotional journey made relatable through casual interactions, dialogue choices and environmental changes; Original musical score created by Elena Alekseeva.
