This series of audio CDs was released by TSR in 1994, presumably as an attempt to create something gamebook-like but more marketable. The series was based on a concept by Flint Dille, co-creator of the Hero's Challenge: Sagard the Barbarian gamebooks. The basic premise is that 911 operators forward calls of a supernatural nature to an agency known as T.R.A.X. (Trace, Research, Analyze and Exterminate). Each disc allows the listener to control a team of T.R.A.X. officers by skipping around the tracks of the CD. The gameplay is no more complex than the average Choose Your Own Adventure. Although only four audio adventures were designed, the T.R.A.X. concept lived on in the form of a 1996 computer game and a 2000 TV movie which appears to have been announced but never released. A few years after being released on CD, the first two of these adventures appeared as downloadable RealAudio games on the Wizards of the Coast website.
