Text adventures for... iPods?

Choose your own adventure!

Malinche Entertainment has created a variation of the old Choose Your Own Adventure books... but on Apple's iPod.

Those old enough to remember the craze that was adventure books, peaking in the early 90s before gaming pretty much killed them, will be happy to learn they can download a batch of new titles into their iPod or iPod Mini (iPod Shuffle or older "first generation" iPods manufactured in the first half of 2003 sadly are not compatible). Once in your machine, you can boot them up while playing music, allowing you to indulge in the world of interactive fiction and party like it's 1989.

A number of Malinche's titles are available for download at its site for $9.95 each. Brings a misty tear to our collectively aged eyes...
