Every week we run an ad in The Public. I’m left to my own devices, which usually means, well… Things get weird. I decided for the month of April to have some goofs and run a four part “Choose Your Own Ad(venture)”. Because I sincerely doubt anyone actually saved a month’s worth of advertisements — though I hope you did! — I also made it into an online version.
Choose Your Own Ad(venture), Twine version
I made it in Twine, a really cool tool used to make some interesting games/interactive stories like Depression Quest and Ultra Business Tycoon 3 (.nfo).
The initial idea came to me when I saw someone make a choose your own adventure game on Twitter. It takes more time than it might be worth to play, but the concept really stuck with me.
I of course have to thank Chris Groves for doing the layout of the ads. He is a creative wunderkind, except probably older than a wunderkind should be? I don’t know. He rocks.
In the course of making the Twine version I discovered at least two errors in the ad directions. Whoops.
