Interactive Fiction

Also known as iFiction or just IF, there is a odd little gaming community out there that needs be pointed too. Generally, these games play like a storybook, choose your own adventure.

Some early examples would be zork I, II and III these games are nothing but that of IF and only require you to spell simple works and understand simple concepts.

Such games are usually lacking in graphics and usually play like reading a single player mud. However, such games have a lot better story then a mud, and don't require you to trust others around you.

Some of the mechanics I found on simple explanation sites made it sound similar to emulation, but that is only the case when actually dealing with DOS games. Most seem to be broken into two parts.

One part of the game is the actual game and the other is it's personal OS. Each game has to run on multiple operating systems and separating the run sequences from the game itself makes sure that more people play them.

This is due to the size of IF community itself.

A flash based, IF that was directly suggested to myself for its simplicity, shortness and general noob friendly attitude of it can be found here and in the side bar. the side bar link is located under individual flash games, although that is technically not correct.

Warning: These things require you know how to read and spell.
