My interpretation of one of my favorite TV shows from childhood: Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? This work is primarily based on the TV game show version rather than the computer game, book, or cartoon versions.

The amount of detail that goes into each branch of this storygame is impeccable. It captured the mood of the source material and the interview system was clever. Very well done.

Easily one of the best fanfics on the site. It was witty, well written, and really had the feel of the old Carmen Sandiego point-and-click adventure games that I practically grew up on. Great story, man!

Oh that was fun! I gave it a seven, originally I was planning a six, which was about ultimate for a storygame about Carmen Sandiego. I really, really, really loved how you incorporated so much history and educational material into the game. That was especially cool because Carmen Sandiego was an educational game itself. I liked the varying degrees of difficulty from start to end and the writing itself was really impeccable. Only your use of variables as opposed to scripting to display the TIMELEFT variable was anything less than perfect. My only advice to creating a better storygame is to choose a stronger topic. This was still, however, an excellent storygame. Thanks :)

Is it sad that I cheated most of the time? xD

Finding Carmen Sandiego is more annoying than finding Waldo. At least Waldo doesn't taunt you. Brilliant game.

Felt very true to the original show, but also a little more grown up. A lot of fun.

This was fun, and accurately captured the tone of the old-school computer game I played when I was a little kid. I felt that the "educational" parts were a little long, but I loved the time element.

Great game! Loved it! Reminded me of watching the show and playing along when I was a kid. I didn't notice any spelling or grammar errors so Kudos on the proofreading. The facts on each location were very educational as well. Keep up the good work gumshoe!
