Games with Books/Bookshelves/Libraries - an IFDB Poll

by Andrew Schultz
RSS Feed

I'm interested in games with lots of books you can read through. Maybe it's just a lot of cool titles and authors. Maybe they're randomly or procedurally generated. Maybe they reference pop culture, or maybe they're the author's own silly ideas.

Well, actually, a game with one or two books is cool here too if there's a really cool name.

(Note: I'm extra interested about books with authors, but any titles will do.)
