Choose Your Own Adventure: Talking To Your Girlfriend




The following is a map of the structure of Choose Your Own Adventure: Talking To Your Girlfriend, an interactive video adventure by Mike McAlister. The story follows a man who arrives home to his emotionally unstable girlfriend. The player must choose what he should say or do (and in one particular video, when to choose), in order to prevent becoming single or being killed. The starting video is listed, but all other videos in the adventure are unlisted.

This adventure is trickier than others because for one particular video, the timing of a choice affects which video it leads to (in a way that isn't obvious). At a certain point in the video, there is a red flash. Selecting the option before the flash leads to a game-over, but selecting that same option after the flash sends the character into a parallel world (which makes winning possible). In that video, the option text remains the same either side of the flash, but the video URL annotations differ.
