01 Jul An Interview with ALEX WIP: Prototype
I made a 4-minute demo experience/trailer to better illustrate what the interactions are going to be like. As this will be an interactive project, I want to start user research and tests as early as possible.
Here is the prototype:
To play and get the best experience:

- Maximize your browser, then hit refresh for the graphics to resize.
- Enable microphone and camera access when asked.

Note 2: The code used to generate the tiles in the prototype is modified from two of Allison Parrish‘s p5 sketches:
