Added first chapter of an interactive novel that may or may not be finished one day. The plot is settled, but the interactive elements are tentative and liable to vary from chapter to chapter. I think I will stay clear of pure game mechanics though – the emphasis is on reading, not playing.

Fans of Witold Gombrowicz might recognize some of the themes, but of course I have my own take on them. I don't even like his later works.
