Writing was my first creative passion. To this day, writing is the way I express my feelings from moment to moment. While game development is my preferred medium for taking deep dives into big topics, I love to write short stories and the like to explore smaller ideas. Could You Pass the Salt, Please? is a short story in the form of a Twine project.
I made the game for a the Weekly Hour Game Jam. The theme was "Could you pass me the salt, please?". I read in the prompt an undertone. I thought about that depth that can be hidden by incouous words. It became about ignoring the elephant in the room. A punctuation on the thought of "we're not dealing with that right now". I explored the idea through the lens of a relationship.
