Woah, buddy, I haven’t posted on here in awhile. What have I been working on? I’ll tell you!
We used to have this game on the Something Else forums where we’d collectively write a cheesy romance story, with each person contributing a new line or paragraph. It was pretty fun. A month or so ago, friend/colleague Kris Knight had the idea to make a whole site dedicated to such a peculiar activity. I volunteered to help.
With that, we give you:
Here’s how it works, from our “About” page:
Every week, we will start a new story, giving the readers the first paragraph. Past that, it’s up to you. Log in, read up, write a new contribution, and wait for someone else to follow your lead.
This site is also cool because it’s the first project I’ve done where I haven’t gone out of my way to support Internet Explorer 6. Without going off into a rant, for those not savvy to the internet, coercing your site to work on IE6 is possible, but extremely difficult and limiting. We decided to take a stand and be lazy and not support it.
Here’s a video promo Kris made about IRYN:
And I think that’s it. Go take a look and contribute, if you dare. We really hope this thing takes off.
