Nice. I like the genre, even if it is hard to find good writing in general.

I recently started play one called I Am Innocent by Glaznev rec.

It's a really interesting game so far, does anyone know what program/script is being used to create games. I know about choicescript and inklewriter for cyoa games, but this text message format intrigues me.
