Ad Verbum

October 30, 2005 in Showcase

Ad VerbumAd Verbum is a piece of text-based interactive fiction for which wordplay is the primary game mechanic. Inspired particularly by the Oulipo’s explorations of writing under constraint, Ad Verbum adds another layer — readers must respond with examples of constrained writing in order to move forward, and also determine the nature of each scene’s constraint via careful reading and experimentation. See the Directory entry for more information about this piece.
