Overview

Versu is a simulationist interactive drama. It looks at first glance like a choose-your-own-adventure: the player is presented with text and static images, and chooses from a menu of options. But despite the conventional exterior, it is very different under the surface. The game world is modeled as a bunch of independent social practices, running concurrently, each of which provides affordances to the various actors in the scene. The actors choose which action to perform based on their own individual beliefs and desires.

Versu is available now for iPad, and soon for other devices.  Go to http://www.versu.com/
