Why a beta membership?
U-Foria Adventures began as a Master of Arts (Writing) assignment for Online Writing at Swinburne University of Technology in 2016. It was an experiment aimed at creating an interactive story on the web for the web.
The first pick-a-path chapter of the story was published as a sample of an online writing project. An explicatory component accompanied the online publication when submitting the assignment for grading:
U-Foria Adventures incorporates elements of hypertext and interactive fiction in a pick-a-path adventure.
In an ideal scenario the reader-user enters the project at the Home page where they register and sign-in to access the digital fiction. Once signed-in, they are automatically forwarded to Chapter-One, which acts as a single entry point into the fiction (Arnold, 2016).
A different menu and membership plugin helps to limit entry points for guests and signed-in users. 2016, T.B.Dubinsky, Explicatory Component, Swinburne University of Technology.
The explicatory component of the assignment discusses the differences between the project proposal and the completed sample. It also provides an insight into the creation process and interactive features that are not yet active.
From the Author: When can beta members expect the next chapters?
University gave me TMIS. Trust me, it’s a real thing. While U-foria Adventures remains high on my priority list, the continuation of this project will be after July 2017.
In the meantime, why not have some fun with the first chapter? It will remain accessible to beta members and guest readers.

During the final testing stage in the latter half of 2017, beta members will have full access to the remaining chapters.
Beta members will have an opportunity to interact with the full story before the final release date. While beta readers provide valuable feedback, they also receive updates and gain access to other exciting pre-launch offers.
