The visual aesthetics of this short twine game are very good: deliberately retro fonts are coupled to colourful, old-school pictures. The story features Stephen Colbert getting lost in a fantasy plot, and mostly revolves about twisting clichéd adventure and fantasy tropes. But this twisting is itself highly unoriginal, and the author tries a bit too hard to be funny. There is, unfortunately, none of the sharp political satire that made Colbert's show work.
Not a bad way to spend a few minutes, but forgettable.
This is brilliant! Classic Colbert-ian humour wrapped up in a ridiculous Narnia-styled fantasy choose-your-own-adventure. The player character is Stephen Colbert himself - "Your are Stephen Colbert! Congratulations!" is the opening line - and all the locations and possible actions are described in that deliciously hilarious style.
Obviously, there is no political humour here, as its a send-up of the adventure game genre (and Colbert has stopped doing that character for a while now) so republicans can play too, safe in the knowledge that their worldview will not be subverted! ;)
It's a quick ten minute romp that nails the Stephen Colbert style dead-on. If you're a fan, it's a must-play, if you're not, it may even convert you.

IF created as a media tie-in by Felix Pleșoianu
Hello, everyone. I'm looking for IF pieces originally created as media tie-ins (i.e. as promotion/extras for a bigger project). The plan is to write an advocacy piece, but only two examples spring to mind: Emily Short's City of Secrets,...
