Short Description: A work of electronic literature that guides your escape from prison and finding your past.
Longer Description: Prisongenix, an interactive fiction work, was created when an Informatics class in elementary school inspired two students to use the knowledge of if-elif-else statement in Python for decision-making. The story they created requires the reader to actively decide upon the faith of the main character. Since the main character of the story carries your name, you become the main character. In that way you lead you own way out of the prison, as the character, and as an active reader stuck in the prison of digital decision making.
