This project, a hypertext science fiction story entitled “Plenty,” aims to explore our relationships to labor, leisure, and technology. Hypertext, a form of interactive fiction, resembles a choose your own adventure story, but incorporates digital elements which wouldn’t be possible on the printed page. Set in a fully automated, post-scarcity world, the story aims to spark reflection and critique of current systems of labor and global capital. The work also exists in conversation with a broader framework of game critique, including examinations of interactivity, immersion, and ludology.
