a•part•ment is a PC and Mac game created in the Unity 3D game engine. It consists of a series of small vignettes that explore ways to convey empathetic text interactively. The vignettes revolve around the theme of an “autopsy of a relationship,” providing a unified focus and direction while allowing for exploration and experimentation in execution. a•part•ment consists of eight vignettes wrapped within the larger narrative about the end of Nick and Madison's romantic relationship. Players explore a dream-like semblance of an apartment complex, uncovering the stories of the neighbors residing in it (via these vignettes) in order to understand the player character’s (Nick's) relationship and breakup with his significant other. The gameplay focuses on conveying narrative through text and creating introspective play experiences.
