Imperial Credit (2023)

About this work

Imperial Credit is part of a larger work with the same title, an interactive fiction game using Twine, imagining a future welfare system in the age of surveillance capitalism. The main character, a migrant, tries to navigate the murky waters of precarious, illegal work and the often-baroque bureaucracy of the welfare system. Imperial Credit imagines dystopian future where jobseekers are monitored via electronic bracelets and they have to constantly log their “jobseeking” activity, particularly in high-net worth, increasingly gated neighbourhoods.
