Group DescriptionA venture by Infocom in the late 1980s, InfoComics were like electronic comic books with a twist: You could "follow" the narrative from a single character's point of view, or "jump" to a new character's point of view. Thus, you could re-read the story again and learn new things about how the characters different paths affected each other and the outcome of the story.
The display techology used a vector format; many scenes scaled, panned and rotated from one scene to the next.
