I am very excited to announce that I am currently developing a web-based 'choose your own adventure', starring you as the hero and your loving companion: a dog. The story takes place in San Francisco, two weeks after a zombie outbreak has plagued the city, and you must escape the city and reach safety. Along the way you will pass through a variety of districts, come across other survivors, and battle hordes of zombies.
What I am most excited about with project is that, unlike traditional 'choose your own adventure' stories, this adventure will be much more expansive (there's already 600+ passages) and will contain video game like elements such as items to collect and use, light puzzles to solve, some dynamic content, and an evolving story line.
For this project I am collaborating with a few artists and photographers, and creating some of both myself. Namely I want to mention Peter Glanting, who is creating the bulk of the artwork thus far, and you can check out more of his artwork on his website. I find that the mixture of art and photography aesthetics by different artists creates a unique feel to this project, which is partially why I am going to continue to add art to the project after it is released, including work that can be submitted by the readers.
There is currently no set release date.
