I’m happy to announce the release of my newest interactive fiction, The House of Fear. This surrealist historical fiction–there’s a combination you don’t see every day–is an alchemical journey based on the lives of artists Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst during World War II. It’s a fascinating story–love found and lost, escapes from Nazi-occupied France, an abusive mental hospital, and of course some really excellent art. (I was unable to get permissions to use Carrington’s and Ernst’s artwork in the game, but it does include pictures of them by surrealist photographer Lee Miller.)
Play, enjoy, and don’t forget to rate it.
