THE SUNKEN KINGDOM
Stepping into the shoes of the story’s hero, users will be guided through the experience via voice cues. (See “Wilson’s Heart.”) Because The Sunken Kingdom is told from the first-person POV, events will unfold in a linear fashion as informed by the user’s reactions to triggers as well as tasks completed in each scene.
While legend has it that climate change was responsible for burying the ancient kingdom thousands of years ago, climate change again unearthed the forest of Borth. However, The Sunken Kingdom has neither a political nor an activist agenda. It is a piece of existential fiction inspired by Welsh mythology and the sheer beauty of Wales.
Fairies can give you a hint as to where your skull may lie. Break the glass and stuff your pockets with shards of mirror.
Before you pull yourself out of the circle with the rope, the fairies give you a slingshot.
Instead crusty WARTS grow on your hands.
Prick your warts. Prick your sins. As you spear the mounds on your hands, fountains of color burst forth. The spray gives way to an ocean of white mist and blinding light. Now free, enter the afterlife.
