A downloadable short story for Windows, macOS, and Linux
You've been assigned to this Atmosphere Station alone for the last ten years-- just you and thousands of drones, greening the planet. Getting it ready for colonists.
Your shift's almost up. Cryo-sleep awaits, then a plush life on the other side. The retirement you've earned.
But the Company doesn't send you the replacement you expected-- no old man or woman ready for ten years of solitude. No, the Company sends you kids. Brothers. A pair of clones.
They've got a secret. The Company does, too.
Redundant is an interactive short story written in Twine. I do not consider it a game.
I'd like to thank Devo Acuna, who created the art. I'd also like to thank my readers Kent Sutherland, Nate Ruegger, Alexis Ruegger, and Rosstin Murphy, without whom I could not have polished the text of this piece.
Redundant is part of a collection of interactive sci-fi short stories, Other Orbits, which I plan on releasing soon. The other released story from Other Orbits is The Hive Abroad, which you can read here.
You can download the source text of Redundant for free on this page. You can also give me money; I won't stop you! You are free to cannibalize any code or Twine markup in this story.
