    From the makers of the MMO "Second Life" comes the next dimension in interactive fiction [IF]: Versu!

    Rather than the ususal >Get Lamp/>LAMP TAKEN interaction of 1st gen IF, Versu lays down
    a heuristic foundation of simple rules and from your completely naturally random interactions,
    rather complex & completely spontaneous structures are made.
    Like being involved with realworld circumstances and varied realworld human personalities.

    It's called "Emergent Behavior" as I'm sure a lot of you know.

    Here's Versu in action ....



    Interesting, hmm?
    Then why not visit their website today, won't you?

    OK, you've a point there.

    But what's included in Versu as samples & the 1 book in the store are just the beginning.

    Versu's relatively new -- the format will be more embraced as time goes on: more stories & more written specifically for Versu.

    I was always a huge fan of Choose Your Own Adventures - sounds like this takes it to a new level. I'll try it.

    Oh, indeed it will!

    I didn't wanna use the phrase "artificial intelligence" because it's so cliché,
    but think of Versu as "AI Meets Infocom, They Fuck, And Give Birth To A Victorian Novel".

    Steampunk enters the Information Age, if you will.
