A new type of entertainment

We’ve all enjoyed choose your own adventures, and those of you who frequent pope’s site have surely read the choose your own adventure that developed in his comments section.

Shortly after the events of that monumental day, Jon Abad had a vision.

A vision to create a real online choose your own adventure. And he did it here: Youownadventure.org

This is how it works, the people of the internet can go and read the developing story. At some point in your story, you may be greeted with an empty page. This is when you add your portion of the excitement and the adventure grows and grows until it takes over the internet.

Then, each night, I sit down at my desk and open up the story and try to complete an MSPaint drawing for one or two of the new chapters. It’s fun, it’s simple.

The story starts a bit slow, but gets exciting fast.
Please feel free to participate! it makes the whole thing much more exciting.

    YourOwnAdventure.org is so badass, that the spammers are trying to get in but Kurt and I won’t let’m.

    I just caught up on the story and let me just say, epic.

    And the mexican rocket?

    If you do nothing else gentle readers, read until you find “El Cohete Perezo”.

    Then keep reading.

    wow. some of the plot lines have gotten super complicated. I’m extremely impressed. It looks like I’m going to have to do some SERIOUS MSPaint work tonight though.

    Thats right you are. And just wait to see what I have brewing in the works. Let me just say this: Barry Manilow, and the inflatable Subway Suit that we wore that one summer. Get practicing MikeD.

    The neat thing about the whole idea is that people can just bust in and hijack each other. A thread about pizza can suddenly morph into something about communism. I’m an addict!
