Authoring Systems & the Art They Wrought

  • Natalia Theodoridou's Sleepless
  • Created with Twine
  • 2017

"Natalie Theodoridou's Sleepless is a piece about a world in which people have stopped dreaming; it incorporates a lot of the techniques that make Twine as versatile as it is, especially for stories about technology and transformation. Text transformation, popups, full screen effects, disorientation: it's an engaging, lyrical speculative fiction story which uses interactive fiction's capabilities to immerse the reader. It's a short read. . . [play through it] to get a sense of the wide variety of techniques IF can offer even a relatively linear story."—"Catacalypto"
