A standout piece of Interactive Fiction
written in inform
by Andrew Plotkin
. The plot is excellent in its own right, but Plotkin
also demonstrates the idea of the unreliable narrator
is a spy of some sort who is being interrogated
following capture. The user's goal is to relive the events leading up to capture - without knowing them! The point in this IF
that stands out is where Plotkin
pushes the bounds of the medium. Highly recommended.
Go and download Frotz
or some other Infocom
interpreter, grab it from Plotkin's homepage
and get into it :).
My friends have taken between six and sixteen hours to play through it.
