Interactive iPod Fiction

[Click here to go north]

So it seems text adventures never die... they just change the medium. Malinche Entertainment brings Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books to the iPod. Sounds like a cool idea. Games work on the iPod or iPod Mini (not Shuffle, of course), cost $10 each, and are currently available in three different “flavors”:

All games are written by Howard Sherman, Malinche’s Chairman, CEO, Programmer, Webmaster “and Bottle Washer.” If you have a Java-enabled browser, you can test-drive some of his games before you buy. And if instead of buying the games you want to sell them, there’s a webmaster affiliate program available as well.
