Weird: The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction Macmillan Interactive Publishing / Electric Sheep / Global Star 1998

This cd chronicles the unexplained in a blend between a game and a reference CD-ROM. It delves into information on UFOs, reincarnation, the Loch Ness Monster and and other controversial stuff. Video, picture and sound richly present the inexplicable and the unexplained, but don't mistake it as just a book in CD-ROM format. The information within is presented through a 3D environment much like that of Myst. Curious artefacts, statues, and symbols are scattered throughout the domain, each containing its own story. Fifteen virtual environments are accessible through puzzles, further blurring the line between game and reference book. The presentation leans heavily to the 'unsolvable' with hard evidence being glossed over in favour of fanciful speculation. It's an engaging romp through some of the world's best-known 'unexplained' phenomena and a refreshing change from the standard encyclopaedic outlay and the depth of content is satisfying.
