I'm looking for good examples of IF in English, Mandarin, and Castilian, especially those that could be used in a classroom setting.

★★Narrative: ★I personally enjoy the narrative and story. ★★I recommend the work as a good example of literature.

Interactivity: For playability, reader agency, illusion of freedom.

Pacing: Such as good mechanics and structure, fair puzzles, clear objectives, clear narrative breadcrumbs/hints, toys that distract from frustration, graphic map, walkthrough.

Bonus: The fifth star is only for extraordinary works. For the narrative, interactivity, fun gameplay, emotional impact, artistry, exposition of topic, use of medium.

This is an experiment in discovery learning. Use the in-game clues to decipher the Chinese characters. Escape the maze.
