Left To My Own Devices¬†uses the codes of digital games to explore a narrative of loss and awkward renewal. The game’s main character navigates a space of playful interaction and fragmented animation. Game segments take inspiration from the shifting emotional states associated with loss. The character’s backstory is gradually revealed through game play.¬†Thomas writes: “In my work I explore personal and psychological narratives. These explorations are often influenced by digital culture. Using the web as my distribution platform, I hope to find ways to unravel the control of traditional storytelling, adopt nonlinear and nonhierarchical structures, develop more responsive interaction and include moments of chance.
