Describe what your project is about and how to use it. What program did you use to create your design?
This is a “Choose your own adventure” story created with the program “Twine” where the reader can choose how they deal with each problem they face. The premise is as follows: You are the only survivor of a plane crash and you must figure out how to survive long enough to devise a plan to leave the island. In the meantime you must deal with whatever this foreign island throws at you.
How did you communicate with one another? How did you listen to one another’s ideas and provide one another feedback?
We communicated through texts on our phones in order to tell each our ideas. I also wrote the main points and ideas down on the “Notes” app.
What were your responsibilities in the group and how did you make sure each member contributed to the design?
My responsibilities were to create the story, plot and branching paths. Chris’s responsibilities were to provide sounds, images and ideas for the monster that the reader encounters.
How well did you work as a group? Did you use time efficiently together?
I think that we worked very well together, I was quite excited to work on it whenever we got a chance. However Chris didn’t respond to my texts over the break so it was a little harder to get input from him.
How were decisions made? Did you face any problems—if yes, how did you solve them? We initially had two very different visions for the story, I wanted to make it a standard survival story based on a deserted island where the main opposing force was a long lost civilization of natives to the island whereas Chris wanted to transport the reader to a magical world full of dragons and all of these fantastical beasts where the reader would have to find a way to take them down. We eventually settled on a long lost island with an unknown apex predator that had sustained itself for many years, and instead of trying to take the beast down the reader would have to devise a plan to escape it.
Were you satisfied with the final product? How could you improve on this process for next time? I am very satisfied with my work on this project, I described the actions of the reader and described details in the world around them very thoroughly. I would add a few more endings next time.
