“Everything in Between”

Katabasis, December 2018
Katabasis is an interactive creative nonfiction essay based on the way people tend to explore Wikipedia. No one ever stays on one page for long. When people explore Wikipedia, they tend to jump between related topics. This game is designed to mimic that, using a collection of short, personal essays that relate back to the central topic and words within it. Katabasis is produced in Twine using CSS, JavaScript, and HTML with the intention of it looking like Wikipedia visually.
