When I was younger, I used to love the Choose Your Own Adventure book series. Deciding the fate of a story based on the decisions you made was quite thrilling, and now you can have that kind of fun again...on YouTube.

Australian comedian John Robertson created an interactive game called The Dark Room for the video-sharing site. The clip begins with Robertson exclaiming, "You awake to find yourself in a dark room!" You are then presented with four different options as seen in the photo above, and each one leads to another chapter of the story.

Though the game's initially creepy, I quickly got sucked into it and even had a laugh or two along the way. It's silly, for sure, but it makes for a nice afternoon break (warning: use headphones, as there is some NSFW language). Robertson notes on his YouTube page that there are even some Easter eggs thrown in there, so get in there and give it a whirl!
