Twinefoolery Game Added

In the far away Land of IF, there is a curious place called Genre. The town is laid out in a hook shape, at the base of Macro Mountain. Railroad tracks run through the middle of the town. On one side of the tracks live the Twiners; on the other, the Parsers. The Twiners barely tolerate the Parsers, and vice versa.

A satirical tribute to Twine authors and IF purists everywhere.

Rebuild your emotionally wrecked life. In this eclectic Gamebook/CYOA, you can do all of these things, and more. Written in Twine and Chapbook – you can play it in your browser.

Mature themes, tropes, and lame humor.

THE AMAZING CHOICE ADVENTURE! ADDED

This interactive fiction gamebook was originally published to the IF Archive in 2012 as a PDF document (Choose Your Own Adventure, or CYOA gamebook). It was written by an Eighth Grader (mollycule), and I thought the game mechanic was intriguing. So, I ported the game to TWINE format (using Twine 2.37 and Chapbook 1.0) to enhance playability. This port is now located at the IF Archive and IFDB site, of course, but I also added it here at DISTANCE CHESS. There are 129 endings in this gamebook – wow! You can play it in your browser.

Warning: This gamebook has some mature fantasy-type themes and violence.
