About the Story

You're good at what you do: tell tourists pretty lies about love, money, and life after death. That's what people want from a boardwalk psychic, and you deliver. It's not the future you imagined for yourself, though, and sometimes you think you're waiting for your real life to start. That wait ends today.

The curtain is opening, and it's got something it needs you to see.

Off-Site Reviews

Rock Paper Shotgun
"Stone Harbor tells the story of a sidewalk for-entertainment-purposes-only psychic who finds himself dragged into a police investigation requiring genuine powers. Stone Harbor uses its interactive aspects sparingly, more to direct attention and focus than to give the player control over narrative direction. The story is fairly linear, with long passages of uninteractive text, but I found that the pace worked well for me, and the interactions focused on critical beats of the story."

The Breakfast Review
The mix-and-match nature of the reading is fun, sure, but I doubt if the following story is affected by it. So, really, this is a well-told story with a smattering of text effects. The hypertext links offer only immediate cosmetic changes to the text and/or story progress along a single predetermined line. It may be fiction that's interactive, but I don't feel that it's properly Interactive Fiction without some sort of agency or sense of accomplishment.
