About the Story

"Detritus is a Twine game & formal experiment by Mary Hamilton. It is a work of fiction inspired by real-life experiences. Originally it was just meant to be five short elements, each one using a different mechanic, as a way of teaching the author the medium. It got kinda out of hand."

a moving story about moving, June 12, 2017
Detritus is an elegant game about a person's life told through the lens of that person's belongings. All the meat of the protagonist's life and everything we know about that person is implied through their possessions, and as the player, you are tasked with deciding what to pack and what to let go of in a series of moves.

A surprisingly moving little story, it's a reflection about what objects have meaning to you, what they say about you as a person, and what it means to let go of your belongings, your current life, and your identity.
