“Your name is Harriet Leitner, and you and your twin sister Demi turned six this morning! You're having a fancy dress birthday party, and this afternoon you'll be playing Hide and Seek Tip over in the park. You can't wait to catch all your friends.”
There are adventures to be had, friends to chase, people and animals to meet and tricks to play.
Six is a freeware interactive fiction adventure game, a text adventure (In prose! Type commands and see what happens next!)
It placed second out of 38 games in the 2011 Interactive Fiction competition and won the Best Implementation award at the 2011 XYZZY Awards.
The exploits of Six’s enthusiastic young characters will appeal to gamers from any background, and the game is also a good introduction to contemporary Interactive Fiction in general. It comes with a helpful illustrated PDF manual and hand-drawn map, offers plenty of advice while you’re playing and is really good at understanding your commands. Some in-game artworks, sound effects and music complete the experience.
Six can be played on MacOS, Windows or Unix. You can get it from the Download page.
