flash-based game

unVorhersehung (unFortuneseen) is a non-linear story. That means it's actually many stories, which are all connected with each other, and all start at the same beginning. In life, we only get the chance to choose one way to go, and never learn how things would have turned out had we chosen differently.


The cover of unVorhersehung, showing many of the people that appear in it.



In unVorhersehung, this is possible. My practical graduate work is about hte question whether things that happen are fate or coincidence. This is already implied in the title, which consists of the german words Vorsehung (fate) and unvorhersehbar (unforeseen). Using more than 300 scenes, there are a lot of possibilities, of what the protagonist Hans-Peter Gauss can live through in one day
