Description

The author retells the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in an interactive narrative style. The medium encourages readers of the finished project to take an active role in storytelling by deciding what the protagonist does at key moments in the plot; each decision branches out into alternate story paths, allowing the author to draw from multiple versions of the myth in his adaptation, particularly Ovid’s The Metamorphoses and Virgil’s The Georgics. The content chosen for inspiration is based on how it can offer new interpretations of and insight into this retelling of the familiar story.
