Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual, A Series of Interactive Illustrated Stories

Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual is a wonderful series of interactive stories written and illustrated by Bradley W. Schenck that are set in Retropolis, the world of the Future That Never Was. It’s done in a Choose Your Own Adventure style where you can pick which character to follow as the story progresses.

The Thrilling Tales are densely illustrated, lightly interactive stories set in Retropolis, my world of the retro future. Retropolis embodies the kind of future people dreamed about in the 1920s and 1930s – those days when we were *really good* at imagining the future – full of faithful robots, personal rocket ships, and the fascinating, if disturbing, inventions that pour out of the Experimental Research District.

The first story “The Toaster With Two Brains” is currently being funded through a Kickstarter project.
