Interactive Fiction is one of the oldest forms of computer games - interactive stories and experiences in which you are an active character in the adventure and the story evolves around your choices.  Explore a network of caves stocked with treasures and hazards - did you forget your lamp?  See what happens next!

Interactive Fiction is text-based - no graphics.  Interactive Stories are available on various devices, including iPads and are fully accessible.  Have your own story plots?  Create your own Interactive Fiction stories!
