About the StoryTravel into the minds of four important people to collect the Wheel of Wisdom and save the world:
BOBBY CLEMON, assassinated rock star, once called 'half John Lennon and half Janis Joplin'. This charismatic, scandalous musician made the anthems of freedom and pleasure for a generation. Shot by an unknown attacker during an immense protest rally.
THE GENERALISSIMO, dictator and war criminal. He was executed for crimes so horrible that it seemed for a time that such hatred and violence had vanished from the world. But incredibly, this monstrous genius now has a considerable posthumous following.
DOCTOR EVA FEIN, 'the female Einstein' of the Late Technological Age. Honored for earthshaking work on the nature of matter and energy. A schoolmate of THE GENERALISSIMO, she fled his regime, then developed the horrible weapons that defeated him -- weapons that now threaten the obliteration of all life. Her deathbed message to the world supplied BOBBY CLEMON with the words of a peace song.
THE POET, passionate, many-minded genius of the Learning and Art Era, he wrote the great War Trilogy of poetic dramas, which centuries after his death remain the glory of your planet's literature. He wrote the plays in hopes of making enough money to marry the young princess he was hired to tutor. Her father, discovering the romance, had THE POET put to death in the Royal Dungeons.

Artistic Games by WriterBob
I'm interested in games that take the fiction of IF to new levels. These are not straightforward, plot driven games. Think instead of games that play like poetry, or games that focus on a character's revelation.
