This movie contains seven scenes based on the rooms Christian is shown when he enters The Interpreter's House in John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. My movie is not a reconstruction or interpretation of Bunyan's work. I took his description as a starting point, and then went wherever my imagination took me. Some of the scenes may make more sense if you know the book; others may make less. If you want to refer to Bunyan's text and don't have a copy handy, here is an extract.

Flash version: Some of the scenes are 'linear' and play straight through; others have a degree of interaction. If you get stuck, here are some hints.
mp4 version: everything plays straight through!
