Trapped in Time


"Trapped in Time" is an old-school choose-your-own-adventure story, where you make choices by selecting which of the numbered sections to read next. It was originally written for publication in an anthology of Danish Science Fiction stories, and is available from the Danish Science Fiction Circle.

The English translation was entered into the 2013 Interactive Fiction Competition, where it took 11th place out of 35. An impressive result for a PDF document entered into a game competition. It went on to win the Xyzzy Award for Best Implementation, the following spring.

The English translation is available in PDF format at the Interactive Fiction Database.
