Abandonware DOS title

Choose your own adventure

A choose your own adventure video game is a genre of interactive storytelling in which the player's choices directly influence the narrative's direction and outcome. These games emphasize player decision-making and often feature branching storylines, multiple endings, and significant replay value. It's a simplified form of interactive fiction: there's no need to type the input.

The game’s plot diverges based on the decisions made by the player. This leads to different scenarios and outcomes, encouraging multiple playthroughs to explore all possible paths. The focus is on the narrative and how it evolves based on player input. Gameplay mechanics often take a backseat to the story, making these games similar to interactive novels.
