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