What genre is OCTO?

OCTO is hard sci fi with some horror elements.

Hover to reveal spoilers.

Xenofiction of the Octopoid Alien variety is a good characterization, although the mind of OCTO's protagonist is still somewhat anthropomorphized both intentionally for narrative purposes and unintentionally because I am, sadly, only human.

Who makes the cool gimmicks?

I create the embellishments myself with the help of Google, Stack Overflow, and the Necronomicon.

It's all HTML, CSS, and vanilla JavaScript with no external dependencies.

I am not a web designer, but I do take pains to try to make this website a good experience for everyone.

If you dare inspect my source, well... I'm sorry.
