If you loved the Choose Your Own Adventure books (and dying over and over again between their pages), here's some good news: you can play a chooseable path game right now through the magic of Twitter. The bad news: you're going to die. A lot.

Terence Eden decided to play with interactive storytelling by buying up a bunch of Twitter accounts (Twitter has rules against registering multiple accounts from a single IP address) and set to work building a simple but creepy story in the style of those choosable path books.

While Eden is the first to admit that he didn't invent the concept of the Twitter chooseable-path game, what he does with the format is pretty cool. He uses the account names, descriptions, header images, and avatars to help enhance the game's mood.

Give it a go and see all the myriad ways you can die:
