[Robin]: This week I got really weird with it. My pal is having a birthday soon (shhhh) and he adores two things in life: text adventure games and Animal Crossing. So, I thought, what if I made a website that’s a text adventure game based in the Animal Crossing universe? Is that too much as a gift? (No! Friendship is eternal!)
I’ve been making this thing with Twine which is “an open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories.” What you do is write bits of text and then connect them together in their app or on their website:
My realization this weekend whilst hacking away on this thing isn’t anything technical. It was something else. I knew that a website can be a worry stone, something you throw all your anxiety and stress at. But I didn’t know that a website can be a gift as well. 🎁
