The First mile is Malinche Entertainment's long and gorey march into the realm of horror interactive fiction. On the way to a luxurious new job, your car unexpectedly breaks down and you need to stop off for some fuel. Unfortunately for you, that stop off is in the not so sleepy small town of Deadrock Arkansas.
One minute your filling your tank, ---- the next you've got the minions of Hell chasing after you eager for your blood. With many different endings, many puzles to solve and some atmospheric writing, this is a commercially available Interactive fiction game worth playing, ---- despite Malinche's rather over-enthusiastic promotional style.
One major factor about the game, is that though deadrock is a small town, it's pretty large when you come to explore it, so this is not one for those who get easily lost.
Hints are available via direct E-mail to the author, ---- and you can even get a full text walkthrough of the game if your really stuck with some of those more fiendish puzles, and find yourself meeting a grizly end more often than you'd like.
When you sign up to the Malinche mailing list found here You'll recieve a link and password to the Malinche server where you may download the First Mile demo, as well as demo versions of their other interactive fiction games. This demo will let you play through the first few rooms of the game to get a feel for the writing, plot and atmosphere.
You may download the game as a stand alone program, ---- with or without self-voicing text to speech capability. This will create a folder and program short cuts for directly running the game, as well as installing either Winfrotz, see game page or Winfrotz tts see index page depending whether or not you install the tts self-voicing version of the program or not. If you already have either of these interpreters, you can also download the story file separately as well, and open it in your chosen version of Winfrotz the way you'd open any Z code game
With your sign up E-mail you'll also get a copy of the pdf Malinche players guide, click here to read online Which is a great introduction to Interactive fiction in general, ---- and malinche's games in particular.
