IF Miscellany

April 21st, 2008 by Crusader

Freshmeat mentioned two interactive fiction projects this week:

There’s also a lengthy article at Waxy.org about an unreleased sequel to the original Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy game, which you can sort of play (it was never completed) via ZMPP at their site.

Don\'t Panic!

Edit: If you’re looking for more recent IF games, Anchorhead, Varicella, and Galatea are three standouts. There’s also the annual Interactive Fiction Competition.

    ZMPP looks really great. Not that there too few Z-machine interpreters for UNIX, though… :) I still have a C64 copy of HHGTTG with all the extras, including the red/yellow pin-button, that you see above!
