Inspired by true events, Mordant (meaning an acid or other corrosive substance used in etching to eat out the lines, areas) explores the nature of inspiration and love, suffering and redemption. Carson, the central character, is swept from her life of familiar hardship to artistic opportunity through a chance encounter with an art gallery owner; ultimately, she is forced to chose between the life she knows on the street and the unknown world of material success.

Mordant is a Java-based interactive narrative. To run it, you must have a Java runtime installed (version 1.5 or greater), but most computers have that by default these days.
