This is a Work of Fiction.

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The game that I had previously mentioned called The Influence has a new name, and a lot more writing.  The new title is “This is a Work of Fiction.”  I don’t want to explain the whole story, but the title works impossibly well once you’ve finished the game.  It’s…kind of intense.

The basic idea of the game is that you’ve stumbled upon a jumble of lightly encrypted files.  Each level is a grid puzzle that you have to complete to unlock a file.  Once a file is unlocked, you get to check it out–Some files are excerpts from books or snippets from old newspapers.  Some are notes written directly to you.  Hopefully we’ll get some images and audio mixed in there, too.  I’ve included two examples of these files.  One is a newspaper clipping and the other is a series of Bible verses.

“…but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor.  So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.”

-Genesis 4:5

“If we go on sinning after we have learned the truth, no sacrifice can take away our sins.”

-Hebrews 10:26

“They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.”

-1 John 4:5

“So do not be afraid of them.  There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”

-Matthew 10:26

Yes, it's an actual newspaper article from the 30s.

    Lol, I get the title

  2. You get half of it. There’s a much more interesting (and relevant) second meaning, but I don’t want to talk about it just yet.

  3. Sounds like an amazing concept, can’t wait for it’s release.

    Sounds good. :)

  5. I hope that I understand the first meaning, it would make me happy on the inside. I was lukewarm to this at first, but you seem serious and this looks pretty cool. Much better than the other comparable titles, at least in plot, and it’s by 2dArray, so I know that it’ll flesh out nicely 😉

    lol, the second idea could be tied to really anything

    Ill just brainstorm and I might get lucky

    the main character wrote fictions

    the main character was watching “Stranger then Fiction” when the story begins

    the main character is making a book/movie/play/show called “This is a work a fiction”

    the main character is making a free flash game called “This is a work of fiction” before being kidnapped by the man >D

  7. Does anybody else think it’s ironic that the girl’s last name is Fell?
