A Little Background Infomation
Narratives have taken on an entirely new meaning
since being introduced to digital platforms. In my Digital
storytelling class, we were prompted by our professor to create
a digital fictional story. It had to be interactive, immersive, and about
all participatory. The overall theme of the story of Tim and The Killer Klover
is fear, and how fear dictates certain aspects of our lives. I hope you enjoy the
story and find yourselves learning a thing or two.
The Klovers make it all the way to through the season because of Tim as their captain and have made it into the playoffs. However, despite that Tim doubts his abilities. He was afraid that he could literally drop the ball, he could strike out, or throw up (he does that a lot). The fear of letting his teammates down could potentially cost them the game. Against all odds, Tim plays past his fears and the Klovers advance to the championship but what happens next no one saw coming. It’s the bottom of the 9th inning, all of his teammates are out and Tim is the last to bad. He runs to the locker room, where he throws up a bit, and then looks himself in the mirror and questions what he should do. There is no time to think but he knows if he lets his fears control him he will never be able to look past it. It was now or never.
What does Tim do?
