Digital: A Love Story

This is a bit of a cheat for the web reviews section, because it’s a game. You have to install it. But it’s worth it, especially if you ever owned an Amiga computer and logged any hours on the dial-up bulletin board systems. Digital is a work of interactive fiction set in 1988. Using your primitive computer and your text-based online window, you strike up a correspondence with an insecure poet named Emilia. By trading replies over the local BBS, matters develop. To say more would spoil the experience, but it’s an experience you will enjoy. (Derek Winkler)
