The 19th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition has been under way since September 29. Voting closes on November 15. You can play all the games for free. (Hey, what is interactive fiction?)
One game you must play is Solarium by Alan DeNiro.
The year is 1954. One year after mutually assured destruction. And I am trying to find you, through memory and alchemy. Not many people know how the nuclear devastation really happened. But we do.
We were part of Solarium.
Perhaps I should use “play” loosely, because Solarium is not a puzzle game, role-playing game or anything of the sort. It is literally interactive fiction. If you like to read (novels, stories), Solarium is for you. Gamers read, readers play, both experience.
