Description

A piece of hyperfiction masquerading as a rare romantic text adventure game about a big date with what could be Mr. Right. Choose-your-own-adventure interaction spins the customized player along whimsical tangents but ultimately all plot forks either lead to dead ends or rejoin the fixed-rail central narrative. Manic and wacky energy drive even the second chances resulting from the selection of obviously wrong choices, all while skewering conventions of the romance genre.

Trivia

This game (originally written in Pinnacle's proprietary MS-DOS PINNTALE hypertext engine -- apparently to demonstrate its capabilities, since this is its only known product) was ported to the AGT (Adventure Game Toolkit) interactive fiction scripting language by Mike Ryan -- source available at http://mirror.ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/source/agt/rapture.zip
