Today the gaming website Rock Paper Shotgun asked Have You Played… Sleep Is Death? As regular readers know I am an author who also enjoys games; especially if they tell stories (and are mixed with zombies).
Sleep Is Death is a tool for interactive storytelling. I did play one game of it in June 2010. It was a bit silly - I didn't really know what was happening, and where we were supposed to end and the characters begin. I may regret this, but here is the story we created, off the cuff.
Disclaimer: this is a fictional Karl, roleplaying a third character. It doesn't represent my real-life views on zombies or anything else. This is also the censored version, since there is no 18 rating on the Internet.
