The Hive Abroad

The Hive Abroad is an experimental, nonlinear sci-fi short story about friendship, community, and changing yourself.

You can read it here.

It is also available on itch.io, because that’s where the twines are at now, apparently

I began working on this story in 2013. I finished it in early 2015 with the help of Andi McClure (code) and Julie Fiveash (art).

Andi wrote a Twine macro for me which allowed me to queue up passages for the player to navigate as if they were a timeline. Having this code made designing and testing the story’s structure 10000x faster and easier. Take a look at Andi’s website.

Julie drew images used in the story’s navigation UI. Take a look at Julie’s website.

This story was written in Twine 1.4.2. You can find the story’s .tws file here. It contains all the javascript used to make the nonlinear navigation work.
