About the Story

Redactor was created as the author's excuse to incorporate interactive fiction into his day job. It was created to promote the Shakespeare Theatre Company's presentation of "1984" in early 2016. You play as Winston in his job at the Ministry of Truth, redacting information or transforming "lies".

Time-based puzzle set in Orwell's 1984, June 25, 2016

Time to completion: 15-20 minutes

Redactor is based on George Orwell's 1984, where you are a worker in the Ministry of Truth who is charged with changing written history to suit the party's needs. The task itself is simple; you simply click on what needs to be changed. The trouble is, it's all time-based, and you'll need a quick eye to find all the keywords - and it's not always easy.

The key mechanic is ingenious and well suited to Twine. Timing adds tension, interaction with NPCs adds tension; the subtlety of the job adds tension (when it goes from redacting all mentions of a certain name to changing bad news to good, it can get fiddly).

Ideal for those who enjoyed (or at least fascinated) by the world of 1984 and would like to explore it from an insider's perspective.
