Quantum Break – a Kinetic Novel

Here’s something completely different!

For the Writing and New Media unit of my Masters in Writing, I’ve written a Kinetic Novel. It inhabits the same world as my novella, “Quantum Chance” which will be available here in the near future.

I’ve had a fantastic time coding this story in Ren’Py software.  It’s really easy to learn the basics, and then quite hard to get the hang of the rest of it, but by then you’re hooked!

In response to one of the comments below – and because I’m a BIG believer in sharing resources – I’ve uploaded the source code (http://1-4all.net/cheryl/Quantum.zip) that made the files above. It was in the “Quantum” folder in my Ren’Py projects folder. If you’ve got any questions about it, please leave them below and I’ll get to them as quickly as I can…

In Windows, when you unzip the archive the folder should look a bit like one of these and you double-click the file called Quantum(.exe) :




Thanks, guys!
