About the Story

A burnt-out fantasy writer is transported into his own imaginary kingdom to learn a few lessons about himself and be confronted with a few questions.

Game Details

Editorial Reviews

The combination of good writing and good programming that IF requires doesn't simply mean that authors need to both be able to put sentences together and write and debug code; an author needs to be able to both tell a good story and design the game so that the story comes across to the player effectively. Rans, by Bob Reeves, illustrates how important both elements are: it's an interesting story that, suitably designed, might have been highly involving, but it's told in such a confusing way that the player has a hard time getting as involved as he or she might.
