How It Begins

You begin on a beach on Ankers Island. You have a sketchbook to which you may paint or sketch any examples of orchids that you may find. You have no particular goals except to relax, explore, and draw orchids.

Notable Features

  • Experimental work. Or in the author's words: This is an improvisational experiment in game design.
  • Autosaving. This game reuses a technique invented for Ryan Veeder's Authentic Fly Fishing to automatically save your position in the game as you play, and independently from the game's version. The author may update the game at any time, adding new material, and your save position still works.
  • No goals, no ending. This work is more about experiencing a place rather than working towards any particular goal. There may be things to do, but that isn't the point of the piece.
