About the Story

Learn the secrets of the Men'nai, an elusive and haunted people that lived on Earth's moon at some distant future-past.

"The Men'nai Tattoos" is a short interactive poem/ethnography with music and original drawings ("slides"). Best experienced in full screen as a melancholy meditation on permanence and the persistence of memory.

Made in Twine.

An ethnoraphical snippet on an extra-terrestrial race, January 27, 2024

This short kinetic piece is presented as an elegy written by a Dr. Chandra Roy about the Men'nai people - a distant human cousin from deep space. Following a forward about said scientist, the piece goes on to describing the Men'nai, from their biology to their culture.
It does make you wonder how far into the future the setting is supposed to be, and how related we (humans) are with that race (did we go to space and become the Men'nai? did the Men'nai arrive on earth and become us?). The end leaves you with more questions than answers...

It also included image snippets to help illustrate the text - though it was a shame these lovely illustrations were hidden by default.

While the interface reminded me of those sci-fi screens and the content of codex pages you'd find in games, there were a few friction elements with the UI, like the description of the text being cut-off/unreadable.
