Featuring five interactive pieces of different sizes and shapes, this volume highlights works that hide below the surface. Whether about a secret society or a thousand past lives, these pieces will leave you wondering about the history behind them and all the potential futures to unfurl. 

We also bring you a parser-based interactive in which the worlds of these stories are brought to life. 

Have fun, explore, but always be wary–things are not always as they seem.

Looking to submit? Now’s the time!

Have you been planning to submit for a while, or just getting the last touches together on your interactive piece? Now is the time to submit! We will be accepting submissions for Vol. 3 through the end of July.

So get your editing caps on, round up the beta-testers, and bring us your submissions.

Vol. 1.2 is released!

We are proud to present Inky Path’s second volume, featuring some fascinating stories of the crazy things that happen once you step off of your doorstep–or the struggles of just trying to begin that journey.

Experience interactive fiction ranging from the dark and surreal to whimsical adventure. We’ve even written up a fun little IF adventure to help you get started–quest for the elusive “worldgates” through a gamebook RPG-styled choose-your-own-adventure!

We could talk about it for hours, but it’s probably best if you experience it for yourself first.

New Submission Guidelines, Upcoming Interviews, and More!

Now that Inky Path’s first volume is launched it’s time to roll out some big changes.

  • Submission Guidelines — We’re cutting down our guidelines to let you submit your work in the simplest way possible. No more reading through a long list of requirements!
  • Streamlined Editing — We’re improving our editing process to get decisions and comments to author in the quickest way we can.
  • Regular Updates — We’re letting this space become a great location for IF news, musings, and other great content. If you have blog content you want to post/repost here, see the Submissions page for the details.
  • Interviews! — We’re sending out a fresh round of interviews to writers and developers in the IF community. If you might be interested in participating in an interview, drop us a line.

Expect to see some new developments around here in upcoming weeks.

As always, we’re accepting interactive fiction pieces–both new and previously published. Visit the Submissions page for more info.

Welcome, each and every one!

Hello all you readers of blog posts, all you connoisseurs of fine literature and seasoned explorers of the Zorkian wasteland. Welcome to you newcomers to the winding path of interactive fiction, you who have only just begun to hold the brass lantern aloft.

Be prepared to traverse vast expanses of time and space, to wander down cobblestoned alleys or take to the air, soaring above the rest of the rabble you’ve left behind.

Welcome to Inky Path. We’re glad to have you here.
