Multiple-choice games

Group Description

Multiple-choice games (or MCGs) are simulators which take their user input from multiple-choice menus, typically presenting information to the player in plain text. They differ from straight hyperfiction (as at Choose-Your-Own-Adventure games) in that while those games present nothing but narrative forks, MCGs do accounting in the background (inventory management, statistics management, time tracking, combat management, variable randomization) using additional sophistication introduced to the hyperfiction model by gamebooks.

More games of this type can also be found in the ChoiceScript group.
