A Fork in the Tale is a full motion video (FMV) adventure game developed by Advance Reality Interactive and published by Any River Entertainment on February 28, 1997.

A Fork in the Tale stars the voice of comedian Rob Schneider as a protagonist who finds himself in the land of Eseveron. The player must watch numerous video sequences and click on certain icons at specific times to proceed, all in an effort to figure out what is happening and how to escape. The game draws heavy from Don Bluth's Dragon's Lair games, and features San Francisco Bay actors Dale Morris, Fred Smith, Michael Ronin Orlando, Eric Carlson, Kaliopi Eleni, Jett, Pamela Herron and Jody Mortara among the fifty-plus roles. Because of the large number of video sequences, the game was originally released on 5 CD-ROMs.

The game was a commercial failure and publisher Any River Entertainment closed its doors just after the game's original release, cementing its status as a major flop.
