ʃəˈlɒt (sha-lot): a poetry game created by Calum Rodger

A short ludic interpretation of the following sentence from Veronica Forrest-Thomson's Poetic Artifice: A Theory of Twentieth Century Poetry: "Contact with reality destroys her fantasy world, but not the poem, for she is more than a creature of fiction; she is an organising formal principle, and her abode has been chosen by the need to find a rhyme for ‘Camelot’."

Play as the EPONYMOUS LADY. Can you find a way to break the cycle of balladic inevitability???

If your appetite is whetted, check out Calum’s games Rabbie Burns Saves the World and Gotta Eat the Plums!
