So Far box cover

So Far screenshot
This is a masterpiece of interactive storytelling. It is no surprise that Andrew Plotkin ("Zarf") is regarded as one of the best IF authors today. In contrast to his later game Spider and Web which focuses on good old puzzle-solving, So Far is all-out on the story – a well-crafted love story full of surprises and symbolisms. Arguably an "art" piece which may not appeal to all, but definitely a successful experiment in that regard.
