People may remember that in 2011, I implemented Jason Shiga's CYOA comic _Meanwhile_ for iOS.

I have finally gotten the thing ported to desktop OSes (Mac/Win/Linux)! It is now available for sale on Steam and Itch.IO.

Announcement: http://blog.zarfhome.com/2018/01/meanwh ... steam.html
Game home page: http://zarfhome.com/meanwhile
Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/71498 ... omic_Book/
Itch.IO: https://zarf.itch.io/meanwhile

On Steam, we have some extra DLC options:

The first is _Meanwhile_ poster art. This is a giant JPEG of _Meanwhile_, laid out just like the app. It's 8640x8640 pixels, so if you print this at 150 dpi, it will be nearly five feet square. (A PNG file is also included, same size.)

The second DLC item is _The Case of the Missing Science Project_, a new(ish) Shiga interactive mini-comic. This was published a couple of years ago in a kids' comic anthology (_Comics Squad: Lunch!_) But most people haven't seen it.

Note: _The Case of the Missing Science Project_ is a downloadable PDF file, not a computer-playable comic like _Meanwhile_. You print it out, fold, and staple. (The fold-and-staple part is important, you can't just browse the PDF. The comic only makes sense in pages.)
