Description

ALFA-ARKIV is a digital novel masquerading as a game. Combining themes of surveillance culture, genetic modification, and Soviet history, it is as culturally relevant as it is technologically innovative.

History

ALFA-ARKIV's story began in 2009, when over a million people from around the world explored the online mystery of JUNKO JUNSUI. Shortly after the Junsui vanished, the creators of the original material began thinking about a new kind of text-based adventure. In 2012, they enlisted award-winning author Shani Boianjiu to lead the writing efforts. Creation involved over fifty individuals from nearly as many countries.
