I’ve been sitting on this for a while, but I thought I’d share it now that Mass Effect Andromeda has been released. I wrote an interactive fiction story in the Mass Effect universe with the intention of using it for a portfolio piece for a game writing position, but managed to find game writing work without it. It’s a spec script, if you will, including voice over notes and cinematic design descriptions. It’s not meant to be a stand-alone story, but more like half of a Mass Effect game mission.
It’s in the Mass Effect universe (pre-Andromeda), inspired by Reservoir Dogs. You shouldn’t need to be a Mass Effect fan to enjoy the story, but it helps. I wrote the story in Twine, so you can play it in your browser by clicking the following link. Enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think!
