Let me know if you prefer this version or the old one!
When I first experienced an ARG (Alternative Reality Game), I was young and had never even heard the term, yet I was fascinated by experiencing a story across multiple forms of media. This first ARG of mine, was the series of children’s books known as “The 39 Clues.”
This review is going to be a little different than most, but if you want to be the very best like no one ever was, you got to step outside the norm.
This is the phenomenon of Pokémon Go!
Here is the beginning of my final project for the final project of my Digital Networked Narratives class. Hopefully the “mindmup” link will let everyone see the story map.
Hey everyone, this is another project for my DNN class. It’s a music video of footage compiled from my college’s Classic’s club Sword Fighting Tournament. I hope you all can easily watch the video and enjoy it!
Keep it Reel!

Hopefully this gif comes out the way I wanted to. I always liked gifs that were cyclical but you can’t tell where it begins or ends. I feel that is one of the better uses of the gif format, but that is just my opinion.
This was such a jarring moment of the fight scene for me that it was what completely takes me out of the moment every time and makes me laugh. It looks like two dudes just swinging glowing sticks at a party, so I wanted to make it look like it would go on forever with the loop. So I hope it makes you chuckle a bit.
Also, quick update, I am currently working, slowly, on an interactive written story for Twine that I will eventually adapt to an interactive video on YouTube, hopefully. With luck, spring break will give me some time to work on that and I won’t waste it procrastinating. Fingers crossed. Keep it Reel!
So, for those of you who don’t know, Undertale is a video game on Steam developed and made by one person, Toby Fox. It is the story of your character falling into an underground world where monsters have been trapped for a very long time. Your goal: make it to the barrier and escape.
Now, it is certainly nothing new to say that this is a great game. The characters are fully fleshed out and quirky, the gameplay is crisp and a fun mix of turn-based rpg and bullet hell mechanics, the story is engaging, and its world imaginative. Obvious 9 out of 10 or even 10 out of 10.
However, I would like to add my thoughts as to why players such as myself can grow so attached to the game and why, despite loving the game, some of us can never bring ourselves to play it on our own computers again.
Here’s the first assignment of my Digital Storytelling class. I have to tell a story in five photos. Please let me know what you think.
Hey everyone. Like I warned you, this blog will temporarily be used for my class on Digital Network Narratives. This is just the first post for that class so the professor can find my blog and add it to the class mother blog. Expect a five photo story soon.
Keep it Reel!
