About the StoryJapanese Rice is an interactive Twine story I created as part of my Master's course. It is a short story from the perspective of an unnamed protagonist who must complete several household chores. Content warning: explicit violence.
It is based on a short story of the same title which I also created, and which was published in the 2013 edition of the UCD English Literary Society's literary journal, Inklings.

The banal language favoured by the author appears only 30 seconds in, and continues in this manner throughout the entire text. (Spoiler - click to show)
‘The sky when I woke up this morning was like a used coffee filter hanging over us
a used coffee filter dripping dirty dregs on the back gardens of the world.'
To me, 'Japanese Rice' is the perfect example of a work that has been authored using Twine for absolutely no reason, and would make just as much sense as a solid block of text. The structure of the text and the placement of the links made no sense and often seemed to be a shallow attempt at free verse poetry imbued with the novelty of hypertext. That being said, I don't think this piece would have any merit as a work of prose fiction either.
