Editorial Reviews

Rock Paper Shotgun
PuzzleTales is a choose-your-own-brainteaser browser adventure with a demo
Maybe itís John Walkerís lingering influence, but Iíve been on a bit of a puzzle bender, and PuzzleTales scratches that itch nicely. Part sci-fi short story, part traditional puzzle-book with a little bit of branching game-book to it if youíre smart enough to figure out alternate solutions. The brainchild of author Lavie Tidhar and puzzle-smith Jake Olefsky, itís perhaps more videogame-adjacent than anything with bleeps and bloops, but you play it in your browser so itís close enough for me. The first four (of twenty-three) chapters are free to try. You may want note-paper and a pen.
