Serialized fiction about being lost in a museum at the end of the world. It's a story told in the second person, inspired by text-based RPGs, choose-your-own-adventure novels, and actual-play podcasts. Explore the plundered collections, relive memories of life before the collapse, and discover what--if anything--is worth saving. POC-centered, queer as in 90s goth.

    Chapter 4: Keepsakes

    Chapter 4: Keepsakes

    To hold on tight, you have to let go. A helicopter readies for takeoff. You head downstairs to the atrium. It’s time for a movie. You play for the punks with your bass slung low. Debauchery is boring. Maybe there’s no reason to stop. Walls turn purple. You find a gazelle and answer the phone.

    Chapter 1: Astronauts

    You look out the floor-to-ceiling windows and see a dead city. The museum has been abandoned for several weeks. Dark hallways remind you of a forest at night. A girl lies under a transmission tower and dreams of mech battles. You solve the torch puzzle and look in the mirror for what feels like the first time.
