Blueful, Blue Lacuna

February 1, 2009 8:20 PM | Tim W.

Blueful is a prelude to Blue Lacuna, the new interactive fiction work written by Aaron Reed (author of Whom the Telling Changed). The short story is told using a collection of paragraphs, with the clue to next snippet placed somewhere on the current page being viewed. This is usually an address placed just before two colons and a quoted keyword. Some visitors have started breaking down the chain, but a user can always return to the index page and type in the keyword for the next URL.

Browser Game Pick: Bars of Black and White (Gregory Weir)

February 1, 2009 8:00 AM | Tim W.

Bars of Black and White is an escape the room game created by Gregory Weir, developer of the popular pixel-horror Flash game (I Fell in Love With) The Majesty of Colors. The adventure involves using a barcode scanner to read clues scattered around the room you're trapped in, with hopes that a key can be found to unlock the door blocking your exit.

Note that a barcode can only be scanned by dragging the red light from left to right. A package containing the scanner will only appear once you've solved the puzzle on your computer screen. (source, video walkthrough)
