Author Michael Lutz has released The Uncle Who Works for Nintendo, a short work of interactive fiction revolving around that one kid you knew in school who supposedly had an industry insider relative.

The story begins with players sleeping over at a friend's house on a rainy night, and recalls commonly shared experiences with the Nintendo 64 and tall tales that once circulated regarding Pokemon's infamous Mew. Things take a sudden turn as the in-game clock approaches midnight, however, leaving you questioning the nature of your boastful childhood friends and their always-nameless Uncles.

There are multiple endings, and experimenting with alternate story paths pays off in a big way. Make sure you wear headphones, too.
