As we've mentioned before, Stephen Colbert has a lot of time on his hands.

His takeover of The Late Show from David Letterman doesn't begin until September and he's been whiling away the hours with a lot of pop culture pomp and circumstance.

However, he released something a little different July 20.

Instead of the usual madcap video, his CBS show portal gives you the gift of a text-based choose your own adventure game.

Play it here: here.



Named, "Escape from the Man-Sized Cabinet", the adventure takes you into a magical land of Narnia-proportions, where you will try and click your way through the right decisions. Be careful, though, the wrong choice can mean certain death.

And that may mean a certain return to work.

The game also includes a centaur named Randall.



This game follows the absolutely hysterical precedent began by Clickhole in March, which invited brave adventurers to risk their necks on Mysterious Skullshadow Island.

If you'd rather have one of Colbert's more ol' timey videos, harkening back to the ones he was putting together only two weeks ago, he uploaded another this morning just for you.
