Elegy for a Dead World: A Game About Writing

If you’ve followed us here at TLN for any length of time, you’ve probably realized two things: 1) we’re all writers; and 2) we all love games of one sort or another. Enter Elegy for a Dead World.

Elegy for a Dead World is all about creativity, and the makers promise it can be enjoyed by writers and nonwriters alike. The basic premise is that as players explore three different dead worlds, the game prompts them to write a narrative about the civilizations that have now fallen. Through various challenges, players will write poems, short stories, and songs about these dead worlds.

And, making the game even more irresistible to yours truly, the lost worlds are based on poems from the British Romantic Period. Namely Percy Shelley’s Ozymandias, Lord Byron’s Darkness, and John Keats’ When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be.
