Ling Ma




Hanna Rittich


Final Project

Field of Study



The interactive text adventure computer game Ling Ma lets you become part of its story. Sue is 19 and lives in Hong Kong, where the social credit system was introduced years ago. She has taken one false step too many and is being spun off to Kowloon.
You can experience and influence how things will continue there together with Sue.

Ling Ma is supposed to show how a story can be told not only through a book but with several elements by using different analogous means. This results in new narrative levels, which can let the player immerse himself particularly strongly into the story.
