About the Story

Barbetween is a short, interactive “art installation” one can visit on Seltani, a multi-user (and multi-author) game world. While Seltani is themed around the Myst universe, Barbetween requires no particular knowledge of or familiarity with either Myst or interactive fiction.

It takes around 15 minutes to play through.

The creation of this work was spurred by the first IF ShuffleComp, organized in 2014 by Sam Kabo Ashwell (even though it did not ultimately qualify for entry, with its dependence on online play in conflict with the contest’s rules). The song it takes inspiration from is “Between the Bars” by Elliott Smith.
