2015 interactive fiction competition. I picked this from the list because the blurb intrigued me, and because I hadn't seen it mentioned in any other blogs.
I called it "web-based fiction" rather than "interactive-fiction" because there were really only two branch points in the entire story. Because of the lack of interactivity, I think this story (about a time travelling detective) would have been more appropriately entered in a short story competition. Many players will judge it harshly for being off-category in this competition.
I read through the whole story, which took about twenty minutes. Then I read again, to all the possible endings (there were only two). More after the spoiler break.
The story is about a woman who approaches a detective with a pair of photos, one of which could only have come into her possession through some mystery of time travel. The detective is a time traveler, so he should be well equipped to study the mystery. However, at the story's end the mystery has not (as far as I could understand) yet been solved.
One branch point, near the beginning, ends the narrative prematurely. The detective never hears the woman's case. No story.
A second branch point, near the end, seems to have no consequence. The story ends the same either way.
As short stories go, I may not be the best person to judge. I am an impatient and easily distracted reader, which is why I prefer interactive fiction. Other stories in this competition force me to reflect on what I just read and make decisions before turning the page. This one...the concept is intriguing and it started well.
