What We Do At Night

Hello.

This is an experiment. And like all good experiments, it might not work as well as it ought. It might even fail completely. But it also might just work, and that might is enough.

This is What We Do At Night, an interactive fiction story. I’m not even going to tell you the genre or the setting, though I will say it’s somewhat dark, occasionally disturbing, and no one is forcing you to play it to the end. It – in terms of language and content – is pretty much PG. I’m not responsible for the images in your head.

It’ll take you a little while to complete to an ending. Obviously, there’s more than one ending, and some endings are more successful than others. It also depends on what you consider success. For the purposes of your character however, your motivation is this: get a job, keep the job. That’s it. That’s all you have to do. Although your priorities might change as you work your way through.

All the choices are simple clicks that take you to another page. Nothing is stored on your computer, no cookies, no java, just old-fashioned html links. If you cheat, you won’t get as much out of the story as you would have done. There’s nothing stopping you, of course. You’re more than welcome to go around as many times as you like. If you need to stop and save your place at any point, just bookmark the page.

Good luck…
