Though still very much a tech demo, there's already something extremely creepy about Radiator Yang's Zobeide. According to the description on the Super Friendship Club forums, Zobeide will be a '5 to 10 minute hypertext FPS experience' based on one of the chapters in Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities.

It appears as though Zobeide is the name of a city that was constructed by a bunch of chaps who kept having recurring dreams of an elusive beautiful woman. However, none of them have been able to capture her. As such, for reasons unknown, they've decided that the best thing to do is devise a city in the real world as well and line it with walls to prevent her from escaping.

Sadly, it looks like Zobeide is currently on the back burner but it seems as though Radiator Yang will be revisiting the concept sometime in January. For now, go investigate the tech demo.
