A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

"Also I was born with a clown mask on, as the previous player used the hair designer tool to make a mask that covered his face instead of more conventional hair. Later when I walked into my school the word KILL was left etched on the blackboard from his run through the game."

About

Story of Everyone is a game about collaborative content creation.

Players define the identity of their characters through image, text, and audio. At the end, this character is added to the world to enrich the game for future players. The game plays with the fact that aspects of identity are decided by the player, while other aspects are decided by others or left to chance.

Instructions

Due to the APIs used, this will only run in Chrome. Sorry! Play it at https://storyofeveryone.herokuapp.com.

Use WASD to move and other controls will be introduced as needed. In total the game will take around 15-20 minutes to complete. It involves contributing sound using your microphone so it's probably not appropriate to play this one at work :)

Winner of #rainbowjam16 "Technical Prize" for a game that "has a fun and unique mechanic, and is a fun gaming experience".

Rated by other #rainbowjam16 entrants as 2nd overall, 1st for use of theme, and 3rd for fun.

"Awesome idea!! :D I loved the sound recordings and the things you can draw later <3 My 'jamie' has the coolest haircut ever *_*"

"I had so much fun. Please, next player, take care of my baby. Oh, and sorry for that awful song I recorded, ahaha. Love the idea!"

"A super clever idea, and well done on implementing something so finnicky in the short time we had - server-side stuff can sometimes be a nightmare, so well done!"

"This is really an awesome work of the sound capture feature, the usage of the theme was perfect!"

"Brilliant idea - I love how interactive it is!"

"Genuinely had a load of fun playing this game, great idea and it stuck well to the theme while being new and interesting!"
