Action mazes... or Choose your ending stories
 
Dear colleagues , I īve browsed the web looking for good examples of "action mazes", those stories where students have to make decisions in order to move forward in the story and can come to different endings. They are great for discussion, but unfortunately I have been able to find just a couple of them (Holiday maze https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/holiday-maze  and the spending maze https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/spending-maze). I need different topics, and I was wondering if somenone might be able to suggest some more links. Thanks a million!

We call them "Choose your own adventure" here. 
http://chooseyourstory.com/Default.aspx has a few at an advanced reading level.
 
http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2009/05/02/the-best-places-to-read-write-choose-your-own-adventure-stories/ has a list of such stories compiled by Larry Ferlazzo for EFL learners. 

http://www.halfbakedsoftware.com/quandary_tutorials_examples.php may have a couple examples, but I did not verify. Hopefully, that will give you a starting point.  During my search, I read that Netflix has some interactive videos, but I have not verified that.
