Tusitala Interactive: Somewhere Else, Another You
Tusitala adapted the print book into a free browser-based experience, enhancing the existing narrative with interactivity, web and mobile effects, and sound.
This experience targets readers to new SingLit particularly people below 35 and are interested in science-fiction, choose-your-own-adventure stories, and narrative games. We also wanted to bring books to where most people are reading these days: mobile.
Through this project, we are looking to receive insight into reader behaviour and preferences, and use the data to commission native content in the future.
About the book:
Somewhere Else, Another You is a literary game-book inspired by theories of the multiverse: each time the reader makes a choice, the universe of the narrative splits, creating a story in which all outcomes exist at the same time but cannot be experienced concurrently. A cross between a Pick Your Own Path novel and an existential crisis, this book invites you to meander through its paths, and towards your own conclusions.
Written by Tania De Rozario and originally published by Math Paper Press (2018), Somewhere Else, Another You was written under the writer-in-residence programme organised by the National University of Singapore’s Centre for Quantum Technologies.
