Default this week's new game from Enter The Story

As of February 21st 2012, Enter The Story: classic books as games is relaunched with new content every day.
If it's OK with everyone I'll use this thread to list the new games as they appear.

Some people don't consider them to be adventures, so I'm posting in the "general" forum to be safe.
But judge for yourself: each story lets you make the decisions on a classic adventure , facing the same puzzles as in the original book.

The daily update is free, and it only takes six seconds from clicking the link to playing the game, so see what you think!

Stories so far:
Old style adventures:
Les Misérables
The Divine Comedy
Hesiod's Theogony
A Tale of Two Cities
The Count of Monte Cristo

New style weekly adventures:
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Journey To The Center of the Earth

Coming soon:
The First Men In The Moon
Romeo and Juliet
The Wizard of Oz
And another new story every week. I'll keep you posted!

Visitors can also make their own games - it's easy, free, and I'll host them for you if you want. Hope you like it!

Default The First men in The Moon

This week's game is H.G.Wells' The First Men In The Moon: with more content, better graphics, and more ways to die than ever before.

The current game is always free to play (up to that day's chapter). Go on, have a click. You know you want to.

Default Romeo and Juliet

This week's free game is Romeo and Juliet! Slightly delayed because I've added a lot of improvements, in response to feedback:
  • You now get the complete game, not just a few chapters
  • Now with color
  • Now cleaner, and easier to follow (better start, better 'the story so far', now with chapter names so you never get lost)
  • With a substantial quiz - brush up your Shakespeare!
  • And a mini-game about Sam Everyman, the star of the games
  • The backup pages (especially "about") are more professional
  • I now have a business manager: the staff has doubled
  • And the quill pen actually works. (The quill pen is optional, and needs a modern browser that allows mouseover and HTML5. The rest of it should work on anything.)


Plus you get the usual race through a classic novel, and plenty of chances to die. Enjoy.

This weeks's free game: Macbeth

I'm not keeping up quite with one game per week, but that's because there is so much experimentation behind the scenes. E.g. Macbeth has more color, better art (mostly!) and various other tweaks. Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated.

Latest game: Frankenstein, added last week. It's more immediate than recent games: the hero plays a central role, and it uses speech balloons to make the player feel more involved. It's been the most popular game yet.
