Stephen Colbert is no stranger to video games, having contributed the song "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)" to the Rock Band downloadable content library. But he's now the star of a brand-new game from the team at the upcoming Late Show with Stephen Colbert: a text adventure called Escape from the Man-Sized Cabinet.
Made with the free interactive fiction tool Twine, Escape from the Man-Sized Cabinet finds Colbert in his office at CBS, wandering around bored because his new corporate overlords won't let him "drive go-karts inside anymore." It's up to you, playing as Colbert, to explore your surroundings, which include framed photos of you — TV's Stephen Colbert — and a curious man-sized (or bloke-sized, if you want to go by the metric system) metal cabinet.
The cabinet, it turns out, is a gateway to Narnia. Or something.
You can play Escape from the Man-Sized Cabinet in your browser on the website for Colbert's new show. Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the follow-up to Late Show with David Letterman, premieres Sept. 8 on CBS.
