We had a fun time testing this sms game a couple of weeks ago.. since then the creators have made some improvements and would like to test again. It'll be a great way to walk around downtown for a bit as you are getting hyped up for Gen Con next week!
" Meet at the Indianapolis War Memorial to play 'City of Forking Paths', a brand new SMS-based game. The City of Forking Paths is a choose-your-own adventure story that advances depending on your choices. The game is played in the terrain of downtown Indianapolis. The game uses rich, multi-threaded narratives that give you information to solve a mystery as it leads you through the city and introduces you to unique places.
For example, will you go East on the advice of a mysterious correspondent from Indianapolis or head North and investigate the newspaper reports of a scientist’s disappearance?
In order to play, your phone must be enabled for basic text (SMS) .
If you played last month, we have fixed the bug with Sprint and a full story will be waiting for you.
Participants will be in a drawing for a free copy of the game and an opportunity to publish your own Choose-your-own-adventure in 'City of Forming Paths'. Meet at the Indianapolis War Memorial (corner of Vermont and Meridian)
