Kitty and the Sea

Minimal, abstract art depicting a cat's paw print overimposed on a seascape: seagulls gliding over the water, under a warm sun.

Take two old areas from a text-based virtual world. Stitch them together with new content; flesh out and brush up the old. Add a handful of minimal, abstract illustrations for good measure.

The result is Kitty and the Sea, a hypertext walking simulator about loneliness; a short story where nothing happens because the good days are past.

It's a surreal, dream-like piece, with a touch of steampunk for good measure. Feel free to find your own meanings in it. Every little bit has deep roots however, and carries precious memories. Hopefully that comes through.
