Wayscape is a narrative experience for web and mobile that aims to revolutionize participatory storytelling. It invites users to contribute to a shared storyworld set in 1930s New York, using images and short fiction to explore the terrible toll the Great Depression took on the city’s inhabitants… and their dreams.
By browsing an annotated city atlas, users can tap on storypoints to expand illustrations, character backstories, and documents with crucial clues to an occult conspiracy. As this plot unfolds week-by-week they can submit their own stories and artwork, adding new scenes to the fabric of the world. Our users will shape the course of the story as each new mystery is solved.
