A post-apocalyptic take on current American politics, January 12, 2018

This is an ePub game with hyperlinks. It consists of a series of articles with footnotes and cross references.

The idea is that a viral outbreak has caused the collapse of America, combined with Trumpís actions. As you dig deeper, though you find a greater truth.

Itís coever, but the chosen format is slow paced and sometimes dull in the name of realism, like when it had a largely standard ten page blank medical form. Many critical moments are hidden in transcripts emulating Reddit and 4chan, and the author took painstaking care to recreate the racism, homophobia and misogyny of these forums. This didnít really suit me.

This was a creative format, and represents a great deal of work. The writing is detailed and feels authentic.
