Active Fiction Adventure: Welcome To Weird World
Welcome To Weird World!
This is Steam Hat's newest (and weirdest) Art Game Exhibit, Active Fiction Adventure: Welcome To Weird World. It is a fully functional interactive-fiction game taken to the extreme and YOU make the choices. Filled with over 157 text cards, mini-games, illustrations, and MUCH more! Make sure to bring your jogging shoes when you come play this, because you'll be running around in circles searching through the 6 sections of this exhibit.
This particular Art Game Exhibit was based off of the short story written by Robert L. Kline Jr. titled “Welcome To Weird World”. THAT story was based off of a collection of rather bizarre creatures created through a collaboration of both Robert L. Kline Jr. and Dru Woodard. Portions of each of the original character sketches were separately drawn by each illustrator in secret, which gave birth to a bizarre and wonderful collection of creative creepies.
This exhibit has been featured at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Many thanks to Ingenuity Cleveland for their continued support.
