May's Game: Guilty Pleasures Chapter One

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, my plan for this month was to take the first chapter from the book Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton and rework it into a text based game. My hope was to enable the player to play as though they are Anita Blake, yet keep the energy the original author put into it. I think I managed to do this.

Guilty Pleasures Chapter 1 Text based game

The basics of the game are pretty self explanatory. You simply read the text and click on a link at the bottom. Some pages have more than one option. Some will give you some background information to the story and world, others will allow you to skip past the detail. Those of you who have read the actual book will notice that I've added a few things to the story. Hopefully these don't detract from it.

If enough people like this chapter, I might do another from a different book next month. I'm hesitant to do any further chapters from Guilty Pleasures as I don't want to run afoul of Fair Use laws nor do I want to detract from Ms Hamilton's hard work. So if you like what I've done, I strongly recommend that you purchase the book and support this wonderful author.

To play the game, simply click on this link, download the html file and double click on it. It should open in your web browser.
