Clavis Cryptica
Interactive Fiction: The Ark
Itís the classic start to a text-based adventure game, or in this case, a work of interactive fiction. In The Ark, by Matthew Marcus and Devi Acharya, instead of finding yourself standing in an open field west of a white house, you awake within the confines of an advanced alien space craft. Your task is to explore the ship and discover the history and fate of its people.
