Home of the Underdogs Anyone remember the old King's Quest series by Roberta Williams? (Yes, I still have that series in my library.) Oh! Btw, you can still download those old Infocom games from the IF Archive. So, if you're feeling "Zork-ish", it's in there.
Another excellent site for IF games, Faralas, is Home of the Underdogs
. It takes a while to load, but it has a large selection, including recent releases.
is one of my 'homes away from home' and a place where I do a lot of research. I'm working on an article on the history of interactive fiction. (Well, I'm working on that in my spare time.) I can also be found hanging out at The Brass Lantern
. Steve Granada has written some terrific articles on what it takes to write an IF game, it's target audience and the various platforms IF can be read/played. With the advent of the wireless telephone, my publisher (as are a lot of other game companies) are tapping into that market. Technological advances and the speed at which computers are evolving absolutely amazes me.
Anyway, I could talk IF and gaming until your ears fall off. But I'll spare the bodily injury to our beloved forumites. *g*
