About the Story
The comic Right Click on xkcd has a huge amount of nested context menus. A branch named ADVENT.EXE is a short piece of interactive fiction implemented within the system of dynamic context menus.

This is a clever concept. You right click on a picture, and the menus are huge, with enormous branching.
Some do relatively nothing, or are just dumb jokes taking advantage of the menu structure. Others have functionality: turning off the whole system, or allowing editing.
An interesting feature is a text adventure in the 'games' section with nods to Leather Goddesses of Phobos and to Adventure. It tracks state and allows revisiting locations, but it is easy to lose your spot.
Overall, it's funny as an idea, but too tedious to explore fully, and tedious even in medium exploration.
