Final Project

Bed Bugs

This story was fun to experiment with this semester. Working and reworking the ideas through different mediums and methods of storytelling was an interesting challenge. This final project incorporates some of my favorite ideas we covered in class, from typographic techniques like alignment and negative space, to visual techniques like McCloud’s transitions and cinematographic continuity. Using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, I hand-coded this short hypertext story. There are two possible endings, depending on how you have the father respond to Sammy’s nightmares. If the father dismisses his son’s fears, he learns that perhaps there is more to fear in the dark than he thought. If he is supportive through his son’s struggles, together they find the light in the darkness.
