This interactive story considers the different ways in which different people grieve, and how even the same individuals might express their grief differently on any given day. While the reader-player is able to make choices and affect the story’s outcome to a degree, some elements are randomised or procedurally generated to reflect the manifold forms grief might take, or the ways in which mundane life flows on even when an individual’s loss might have brought their life to a halt. Although the story expresses one family’s loss of an individual, the collaborative nature of the story’s unfolding also represents our collective losses during the pandemic.
