ATTENTION: GUESS WHAT? THESE GAMES CONTAIN NUDITY AND EXPLICIT SEX SCENES, SO IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 LEAVE BEFORE YOU POKE AN EYE OUT!
Adult Interactive Fiction is the same as regular Interactive Fiction, except that there are different commands for the sexual content. Some contain puzzles, some multiple endings, others are very linear. To play an Adult Interactive Fiction you'll need the correct runner. The current popular ones are TADS, ADRIFT and RAGS. For convenience they shall be put in their own sections.
No Japanese eroge novels (aka 'erotic visual novels') in this list: there are so many of them that we have made a page just for them.
To play TADS games you'll need to download the HTMLTADS interpreter. HTMLTADS
ADRIFT is slightly trickier to use than TADs as you'll need the exact version of what the game was made in to play it. Fortunately there's only three versions you need to concern yourself with: 3.9, 4.0 and 5.0. All games will be marked with what version you need to play them. It is important to note that if you aren't running on English Locale ADRIFT version 4.0 will not work. One helpful feature that ADRIFT has is that it includes a map for most games so you don't need to memorise routes. You can download all the runners here: ADRIFT

|Last Week Before the Wedding||Your soon to be wife calls you to tell you that you need to reorganise the wedding a week before it even happens. So you need to go around town trying to sort it out with your friends.||Raul||4.0|
|Pervert Action Crisis||You're employed as a teacher of an all girl's school to investigate a recent suicide. There are multiple routes. This AIF is very similar to dating simulators.||BBBen||4.0|
|Pervert Action Future||Sequel to Pervert Action Crisis. You are a Japanese male you goes aboard a space station after finding out you have a 100% sync rating. There is a battle system, 3D characters (even if they do look a little weird) and even voice acting for at least an eighth of the lines.||BBBen||Runs on Adrift 5.0 but is in exe format.|
|X-Men Institute||Based on the X-Men comics. You have become a mutant with a fairly useless power. Nonetheless you've been sent to the Xavier Institute to improve your new powers.||Captain Cranky Pants||4.0|
|Let Me In||As a lowly goblin, can you talk your way into the princess' tower? (and panties?)||BBBen||5.0|
RAGS is the easiest of the AIFs runners you can play AIFs on because there is no typing involved and is just a click fest. Unfortunately the hypnotic and TF community have a monopoly on RAGS games and it will be somewhat difficult to find games that aren't about gender transformation or mindcontrol. RAGS
Twine Games Edit
Twine is a HTML browser based writing tool and all games can be played in most standard browsers. Twine
|The Heir||Based on the Shadowrun RPG, this is a short CYOA adventure that has several erotic endings||EFon|
|The Coleman Institute||
The largest AIF Twine game by far and perhaps one of the largest text-based games ever.
A gender-bender life simulator that starts the player off in the role of Marcus, an effeminate boy with a stunted sexual development, who is offered to be turned into a woman by the mysterious Coleman Institute... or can try and make it on his own. The game's writing is great, the game is quite lengthy despite one entire section still in development and, thanks to a HUGE amount of different story branches (one sub-branch for each of the three sibling, one each for going to Coleman or not, one for which college you go to [or not] - multiply those with each other), there's a lot of replay value and content, even if playing a transvestite is not your cup of tea.
