Tilted was a short story that I started writing back in 2004 and then promptly lost it on an unlabeled disk. Thankfully, I had time to kill one afternoon and was cleaning up a junk drawer in my desk. I found the first few chapters that I’d written and was rushed back into Chester’s mind.
A self-proclaimed geek–with a penchant for cheerleaders–struggles through a particularly unpleasant day, filled with one misfortune after another. After narrowly avoiding expulsion, Chester skips school and takes refuge at a local arcade. As he tries to mentally bolster his collapsing disposition, the pixelated spaceships take more than just his last game life. Filled with despair, he returns to the scene of the early morning incident in an effort to right his wrongs.
