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?

Step 1: Try tempting us with books that don't look boring as all fuck.

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.
