HOAX Our Right to Hope (2017)

 

Along with reworking HOAX My Lonely Heart and HOAX Psychosis Blues for The HOAX Project, I also wrote the interactive narrative app HOAX Our Right to Hope.

This is a choose-you-own-pathway, gamebook style app, designed to house the clinical/scientific study that was key to The HOAX Project whilst cohering that study with the pure storytelling of the stage musical and graphic novel.
