Hey, this is Coral. I write stories of a few different kinds and occasionally I design and program things. You can check out some stories I’ve written here—for a while now I’ve been working on a fictional world named Tradia. It’s got a bit of sci-fi and quite a bit of politics—each country in Tradia has a unique structure and way of life, which makes for some complex interactions.

A long time ago, I created two alternate reality games, Mystery of the Emblem and In Reality. ARGs are narratives told as if they were actually happening, and in this case involved people solving puzzles to help characters who ran blogs.

As for less writingy things, I also host an annual cheesy song contest called Scratchovision. It’s silly and fun and it’s interesting to see what people come up with when tasked with creating something intentionally bad.

Game-wise, a few years ago I helped create a game called Bull in a Gun Fight for the xkcd game jam. It was a collaboration with my good friends Darien, Tay, and Ethan, and it involves using random objects to have crazy battles. In more recent times I’ve been working on a variety of interactive fiction projects, so stay tuned…
