About the Story"MISERY is manifold. The wretchedness of earth is multiform. Overreaching the wide horizon as the rainbow, its hues are as various as the hues of that arch". (Edgar Allan Poe, 'Berenice', 1835)
This condition will never change! But you can, at least, banish it for your mind awhile with 'Evermore: A Choose Your Own Edgar Allan Poe Adventure'!
Containing over 60 of Poe's stories, poems, and essays in adapted, truncated, respectfully disfigured, and exciting "hyper-textual" forms 'Evermore' is the only game with the hubris to connect "all" of the great author's works into one, branching-pathed Leviathan and labyrinthine narrative.
Best played in Chrome or Firefox as sound effects in ogg. form to meet space requirements. If downloading, please extract audio files to the same folder as the html file.
Content Warning: Murder, torture and asphyxiation.

The Breakfast Review
In any case, "Evermore" has no intention of taking itself very seriously. The afore-mentioned loquaciousness is part of the joke; a big part of the fun is in identifying the Poe stories being parodied; and the situations originally described by Poe are played for laughs, the drama overblown to the point of the ridiculous. Does it work? To a certain point. Maybe you don't want too much of it all at once, or the text begins to blur.

A wildly branching Twine pastiche of all of Poems works, May 9, 2017
This was pretty entertaining, but it's tedious to look for more than a half dozen endings. Best for fans of Poe, pastiche, or old fashioned CYOA books.
