Hypertext Ideas

So my first idea is the one I’m currently rolling out on Twine. It’s a fantastical adventure where the reader must make decisions which will greatly influence the outcome of the journey. This will most likely be my final outcome.

My second idea was to make a quiz similar to the Impossible Quiz flash games that we could play on computers in high school. A lot of things to click on for each page, but any wrong click would throw you back to the beginning of the quiz. This would be interesting to implement, but pretty difficult, I think.

My third idea was to make a simple directional story guide with two different choices on each page. I wasn’t too sure what would come of that one, but it was floating around.

Uncle Roger

What an interesting web page. The first thing you click on is a computer screen with “Uncle Roger by Judy Malloy” and then it’s on. Then you can click on one of three files of poems or some information about the author. You can always get back to the previous page through a link.

What was really interesting was when you get into the files of poems. In the first file, you choose a link to follow, and then you are limited to which links you can select after that. BUT! You can click on the same link you clicked on before, and it will open up a different poem and different link options to click on. And you can keep doing that. Almost endlessly it seems.

The second file has three images you can click on to open a poem and the images change as you click on them. I didn’t have as much fun with this file.

The third file has blocks to click on to open up poems. The blocks will stay in the same position and each block only contains one poem. I liked randomly clicking on blocks to open different poems.

This was an interesting way to display poetry and I really liked it.

Broadside Idea

I want to keep my broadside idea and message with simple with just the words “Love trumps hate” in that order. The words will start off far apart from each other, but with each line on the page they will repeat and come closer together. As the words get closer together, “Love” will be growing in size, while “hate” will be shrinking. Eventually, when the words inevitably collide on the page, “Love” will be huge and center in the forefront, while “trumps hate” will be almost illegible behind it.
