Piece of Mind

by Giles Boutel

Surreal/Science Fiction
1996

About the Story

Piece of Mind is a short, humorous work which uses the first person "puppet" concept from Scott Adams and other early games and examines the possible causes and consequences of being so controlled by the player. On the way to insight into the protagonist's nature the player will come across some parody (X-Files, cheesy SF), some poetry (real and instant), and perhaps even the odd moral dilemma.
[--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]

Off-Site Reviews

SPAG
The switching of tense - from first-person past in the introduction, to first-person present in the main framework, to an omnipresent third-person tense for a sub-"plot" - is a very ambitious hack of the Inform grammar. [...] Try to give your entry a little more plot and consistency.
