A couple of students and I chose to read East of Eden by John Steinbeck in our American Literature Lit Circles unit. It was a fairly long read, but not too difficult. It resonated greatly with many of us as it took place in the Salinas Valley, just a few hours from the Bay Area. I created this game that followed a key theme in the book: Making Choices. The player in this game which plays similar to "A Dark Room" involves several forks in the game which lead to different events.
