Malinche Entertainment (http://www.malinche.net ), the world’s only publisher of interactive fiction, celebrates its fifth year in business this month with a doubleshot of good news for fans of interactive fiction and every fan of fiction books altogether.

After months of furious research and development, Malinche Entertainment has launched its entire library of text adventure games for the Nintendo DS. Now interactive fiction fans can put any and all of Malinche’s text adventure games on their Nintendo DS in three easy steps.

“The Nintendo DS homebrew market blazed the trail in bringing adventure games to the Nintendo DS and Malinche took that work to the finish line,” says Howard Sherman, Malinche’s President & CEO and sole Implementor. “Our entire library of titles, from Pentari: First Light announced back in October 2002 to our latest title released just a few weeks ago, the entire Malinche collection can be enjoyed by the 80 million Nintendo DS owners out there right now,” Sherman adds.

All of Malinche’s interactive fiction titles are available for the Nintendo DS immediately at the company’s online store located at http://www.malinche.net/store.html .

Pushing the edge of the interactive fiction frontier even further, Malinche Entertainment cruised into uncharted waters with an unlocked iPhone. “We took an unlocked iPhone and the ingenuity of talented folks like Craig Smith who ported Frotz to the iPhone. The minute we heard about iPhone Frotz we started testing all of our text adventure games on the iPhone. We were all a bit concerned since Malinche’s text adventure games are some of the biggest ever released. Fortunately, the immensity of my interactive fiction titles wasn’t an issue. We had them all loaded and running in less than an hour,” Sherman said with a sigh of relief.

Mister Sheman hastens to add that Malinche Entertainment does not suggest, encourage or endorse the jailbreak of an iPhone. ''Unlocking an iPhone is risky,'' Sherman starts. ''The owner of the iPhone risks voiding their warranty and perhaps doing irreversible damage to their iPhone that Apple may decide not to repair under warranty. For the daredevils in the iPhone community who are thinking of unlocking their iPhone to load Malinche’s text adventure games hear me loud and clear: Good luck but you’re on your own. We’re not responsible if anything goes wrong and your iPhone turns into a brick.''

Mister Sherman is a veteran game designer and technologist as well as an interactive fiction author. He is currently writing ''A Saint in Sin City'' an edgy spy thriller with murder mystery elements due Spring 2008.
