Photopia Adam Cadre 1998

In this award-winning text adventure, you journey between various short stories that are connected solely by color. At any one time, you may be speeding on the road with a friend, landing on Mars, or teaching your daughter about astronomy. It all wraps together in the end, though. Scenes from a handful of ordinary lives alternate with chapters of a child's colorful science-fantasy. Sweet and sad, and complex enough that you may need to go through it twice in order to fully understand how all the fragments fit together. Very story-driven, with menu-based conversations and virtually no puzzle content. It isn't terribly interactive - indeed, you're practically driven through it on tracks, and any actions that you don't take tend to be rendered unnecessary. But the story is intriguing enough, and well-written enough, and moving enough, that this seems a small quibble. This is one of the most successful examples of interactivity at the service of fiction, rather than vice versa. The author intended this game to be played with colored text.
