The Hill

As you meander through the Crosses, you begin to realize how much of a misnomer “The Hill of Crosses” is in reality.

While the majority are crosses by a mile, Judaic Stars of David, Muslim Crescents, Wiccan Stars, Buddhist Wheels, and other symbols you don’t recognize begin to pop out of the sea of white rectangles.

The Hill is a text adventure developed during the IGDA Writing SIG’s game jam focusing on games with extensive stories to tell. Developed with Rachél Bazelais, the game focuses on a lesbian EOD specialist in the height of the the Iraq war, and her partner’s grief at her loss. I wrote the entire story, while Rachél programmed and implemented images. The Hill can be played for free here.
