A downloadable interactive novel for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

Six Months is an in-development interactive novel. It is a sequel to Swan Hill, a twine story you can find here. Swan Hill takes most readers ten to fifteen minutes to play.

Six Months is slow-burning, low-key fantasy fiction in a world where magic is rare and ethically dubious. It's a murder mystery about power, family, and faking it until you make it. If you like Swan Hill, you can expect the final version of Six Months to be more of the same.
