Editorial Reviews

Emily Short's Interactive Storytelling
A blend of structures
"In any case, I found this fascinating from a formal perspective. Stats-heavy gamebooks and stats-rich ChoiceScript fiction might seem quite similar, but they have distinct design traditions, and nothing demonstrates that point quite like looking at a hybrid. On the story side, I tend to be interested in historical stories, but I wish that this one had gone a bit deeper into the era it explored."

These Heterogenous Tasks
CYOA Structures
"After the Flag Fell (Felicity Banks) allows you to play a heavily fictionalised version of the life of Australian miner, rebel and politician Peter Lalor, beginning in the immediate aftermath of the Eureka Stockade minerís revolt. Thatís interesting in its own right, since I have pretty limited knowledge of Australian history. Among the differences: in this world metal objects are enchanted and confer special benefits.

Itís told in the first person, and its choice structure is a little bit unusual for the field."

Australian Setting or Characters by Rhetta_Lynnea
I've played several good games with Aussie characters or setting, and I was wondering if there are any others. It doesn't have to be the main focus of the game, just a little extra colour.
