The Winter House: an interactive short story

As part of their Story campaign, Booktrust have commissioned The Winter House by Naomi Alderman. It’s a spooky interactive short story set at the turn of the last century, and it includes game mechanics in order to progress the story. The text elements fade and bounce, mirroring the actions described, and hyperlinks and point-and-click hotspots move readers to the next scene. Definitely worth a look, and full of jumping-off points for learning opportunities.
