About the Story

A love letter to ecology and the promise of new worlds.

Created for the Neo-Twiny Game Jam, with the stipulation that the game be shorter than 500 words in length. Successor is a brief work of speculative science-fiction about terraforming and those who may one day perform it. Precisely 498 words in length, minus code.

Thoughtful musing on humanity's future, July 30, 2023

This game is written for the Neo Twiny Jam in 500 words or less.

It uses its words more or less all at once, spooling them out into a mostly linear essay/story with occasional expandable text. A lot of parts of it are customized.

It's a piece about humanity colonizing the stars and how it must feel to start processes that will not be finished for thousands of years. About what it means for worlds and humans to evolve. With minimal structure, it's relying heavily on the styling and the text itself here, and I liked both.

A Love Letter to Ecology, July 14, 2023

With the current ecological state of the world, it is hard not to feel hopeless for future generations. It is also quite normal to turn towards science/speculative-fiction to imagine a world in the far future where Nature has taken a priority, and technology can do wonders to protect it. Like a soothing balm, reminding us that things might work out after all…
This is this kind of hope that this entry is bringing forward.
