If you’ve choosed-and-adventured through Bandersnatch, the recent Black Mirror thing on Netflix, and aren’t already a fan of experimental interactive fiction: I envy you. It means you’re able to play actually good examples of interactive fiction for the first time.

For those of you (and by "you" I secretly mean "us") who have been intrigued by the Crows Crows Crows emails but…
