In Sidequest, The Guardians of the Tradition create a classic cyberpsychedelic Text Adventure in which you (William Crowther) crawl through a generative, cut-up and recombined twisty little maze of passages through timespace that criss-crosses networks such as Mammoth Cave, ARPANET, SAIL and The Hollow Earth.

The Guardians of the Tradition are jonCates, Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy, an Art Games guild.
