Many writers in Singapore lead double lives, and we’re going to make it triple as they take on new avatars in Difference Engine’s new interactive Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style game, Internal Damnation. Inspired by DE’s comic-prose anthology, Work-Life Balance: Malevolent Managers and Folkloric Freelancers, watch them get coffee for demons and climb virtual corporate ladders while sharing about their own writing journeys and balancing long work hours with their creative lives.

This programme is co-presented with Difference Engine and is recommended for ages 18 and above.


Benjamin Chee created the comics and illustrations for Work-Life Balance. He enjoys mashing up genres and themes, so after making several books with titles like Charsiew Space and Lychee Queen, he ended up asking Wayne Rée for permission to adapt the wild west short story, Mr Memphis, into a Wuxia comic… leading to them making this book together.

Wayne Rée is the co-creator of the prose/comics mash-up, Work-Life Balance, and the comic, Worlds Apart: A Conversation About Mental Health.
