An interactive fiction game

Everyday Objects to Gold is a 36,000 word comedic choose-your-own-adventure story that revolves around an attempt to learn alchemy. In place of a way to transfigure something to gold, you might find Richard Nixon or a flock of particularly violent birds who sing the Frasier theme song. Perhaps you stumble into success as a restaurateur or discover the American history of teleportation.

Everyday Objects to Gold is an interactive fiction game, a 36,000 word choose-your-own-adventure story. There is a way to win and a way to lose and many, many ways in between.

Doctor Francis McRee will be your guide through this perilous journey. Trust him and his wide collection of exotic drugs and you, too, can get the Midas touch!
