An Experience is an alternate reality game about the Internet achieving sentience.
You will be told a story gradually as you browse the web and encounter and interact with different characters through an augmented layer on top of the pages you normally visit. Ways in which websites will be altered include overlays on top of the page, additional content added to certain pages, and replacing the content of banner ads with material from the story. This extension will occasionally surprise you, and occasionally do things you haven't seen it do before. If such surprises would be unwelcome, the extension can easily be turned off and on by pressing on its icon on the upper left corner of your chrome window. None of your data or records of any of your actions within the game will ever be sent off of your computer. --- An Experience is made and maintained by Todd Anderson for his MFA Thesis in Digital Language Arts at Brown University. This extension aims to explore chrome extensions as a creative form, and to test their capacity for gameplay and narrative. It is not, like many other chrome extensions, a simple tool to accomplish a simple task, but it is designed to build a single coherent world and to tell a story within that world. I hope you enjoy it.
- (2017-07-11) Miranda Rife: I really love the extension and am having tons of fun but I think I'm experience a glitch. The kite keepings telling me that it's modified my browser so that I can teach it text, but when I follow it to the kite poem and right click, I don't see the option to teach it the text. Am I missing something?
