Footnote 12: On a few occasions the death of the character can be enjoyed by the interactor. It can amuse, as many interactive fictions use humorous text or media fragments to inform the interactor of his or her character's demise. In Space Quest, an interactive fiction by Sierra similar in design to King's Quest, the interactor was notified of character's death by a message box on the screen in which there were comical animated images of the character perishing.
