Cat Scratch

I was a little disappointed by this one. It's presented beautifully, and it seems well-written, but it quickly became apparent that it's not interactive fiction as we understand the term. It's a novel with animated illustrations.

Sure, you could argue that it's fiction, and the fact that you can interact with the illustrations makes it interactive, ergo it must be interactive fiction. But that's not what we understand by the term. Names are more than just the sum of their individual parts. We understand what is meant by a "pancake", but we can't take a fruitcake covered in marzipan and call it a "pancake" just because it's a cake and it was baked in a pan. No matter how much you love fruitcake. (I love fruitcake. Don't look at me like that.)

As a breakfast, this is a long walk on the beach at sunset. Lovely, but ... yeah, no.
