“Your plane has been shot down over Soviet-controlled territory. The information in your possession is a vital component to counter the Russian strategy in the cold war. You need to get the intel to your superiors as soon as possible. The Soviet army is hunting you relentlessly, so you need to be fast and avoid detection.”
Behind enemy lines is a short single-player board game. The player starts in the middle of the board and is allowed to move a single square each “turn”, cannot move back to a previously visited square, and cannot move through the thicker “walls” between certain squares. Each square contains a segment of the story producing a coherent overall narrative by the end.
The writing was done over the course of a week, decisions on themes, and the structure was done before that.
This was done as an assignment during an interactive storytelling course.
