Blueful. Web-dispersed storytelling reminiscent of the some of the stuff in We Tell Stories to promote the free interactive fiction game Blue Lacuna from Aaron A. Reed, the creator of the excellent interactive fiction title Whom the Telling Changed. Caveat: the ending is only available (afaik) on a (free) postcard so if you don't feel comfortable giving up a mailing address, you won't see the ending.

I hit a stumbling block in the trail, so do keep track of the last "keyword" in the chain.

Woah.That second sentence of my post is awful. Serves me right for posting between working and before coffee.

Lovely and intriguing.

There seems to be a link missing; I get to the SPOILER and it's empty. If I enter the keyword at blueful.com, I'm sent to an episode that does not make sense given what I know so far. It seems that another character was introduced in the episode I missed.

Yeah that's the same snag I hit, LogicalDash. I think when you punch in the keyword, it also alerts him so that he can see if he needs to fix it (though who knows how long that will take).

The "missing" link in the chain requires a forward slash at the end (/).

Sorry, I misunderstood - you're right, that page is empty and shouldn't be. (Not affiliated with the project - I went through it a few days ago.)

Emily Short has a review of Blue Lacuna up on Play This Thing!
