A downloadable game
Classification: a narrative-driven, love-lost graphic adventure.
Genre: romantic cyberpunk, loss-of-self.
New Heights is focused explicitly on narrative structure/design and user experience. It is an experimental format and it is currently in alpha. The first chapter, or tutorial sequence, was finished in time to be submitted for the Cyberpunk Game Jam. As a result, the game currently ends after the (very short) Tulip Neighborhood.
The mechanics of New Heights are all developed; continued work on the game will involve generating further content to continue the story as it is currently laid out. Note: certain systems are not flipped on yet, for further testing.
