Dylan is a 15-year-old boy that comes from a paper world, where he himself is made out of paper and everything around him. Dylan lives in the time of the French Revolution where everyone is ranked by classes and the king ruled everything, making the commander pay taxes. He is an orphan and stays in an orphanage in a small town in France. After going out for walks Dylan sees children with their family and is eager to find out who he really is. He wants to know who his parents are, his background, and why did he end up as an orphan. One day the caretaker of the orphanage saw how sad he was and he explained his story.

- Why does she say interactive fiction virtually died out in the mid-1990s?
Interactive fiction virtually died out in the mid-1990s because of competitions like the annual IF Comp which resulted in artistic innovation.

Poetry is an important element of interactive fiction writing because in the games words are all that is used and the right words have strong meanings. The example she uses is from “with those we love alive.”

Ambiguity is not only unavoidable but also necessary because there is not enough space in a game for all of the details like texts and graphics and that is when the player fills it in with their imagination.

Complicity is important because in an interactive fiction game the goal is to have the player interact with the story.
