Hi! I’m Elliot Herriman, a writer (and programmer) based in Australia.

I tend to only host my recent work on here. If you have any questions, or need additional samples, just shoot me a message on Twitter.


Cover Me In Leaves (5 to 15 minutes)

On bright minds, and the end of all things.

A short work of linear interactive horror fiction. Available on Steam and itch.io.

“extremely stirring … mightily well-written … the catharsis which declared itself in every sentence of her story was loud, clear, and universally comprehensible.”

— Nate Crowley, Rock Paper Shotgun

Outside (5 to 15 minutes)

“Sometimes I just want to pick you up and shake you like a shitty little racoon.”

Ren is out of food, and the cabin fever has set in. But the world outside is…

Well. Outside.

A kinetic novel, originally made as part of NaNoRenO 2020+.

The Sword That Sealed The Darkness

A mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, adding dialogue, events, and mechanics. Designed to rebalance weapon durability in a way that remains faithful to the original game’s themes, pacing, and feel.


Teeth Into Bone (800 words)

This was new to me too, once.

On first dates, teeth, and predation.

seré, lo que era (700 words)

The breeze through the trees. And everything was still.

On gifts from the fae, acceptance, and mercy.


Big Boned (2 minutes)

For a giant in the big city, it’s difficult to fit in.

Recipient of the 2019 Scout Film Festival Emerging Filmmakers Grant.

This one was meant to be released in early 2020, but since so many film festivals have been cancelled, we’ve had to keep it private for now! Just message me on Twitter if you need a password!

Undiscovered (3 minutes)

Sasquatch has always remained elusive in photos — but not for the reasons we think.

Aided with the narrative design of this short film, which aired at SXSW, Palm Springs, Clermont-Ferrand, and TIFF, among others.
