Short CYOA document, great humour, March 26, 2023

I had never heard about this game, perhaps because there is zero coding behind. It is an old fashioned CYOA "book" - simply a page with numbered paragraphs. You start at paragraph 1 where you get to choose what to do, which tells you the number of the next paragraph to read.

You play as a secretary bot with the task of investigating a murder. There are several endings despite the document is fairly short. Overall it works pretty well for several play throughs. What is most important is probably the humour which is silly in a good way. Quite entertaining and fun.
