Let's Tell a Story Together Reviews
Jimmy Maher's book tells a fascinating story about how interactive fiction (IF) came to be from its early days as "Hunt the Wumpus" and "Adventure"; the release of the early commercial text-adventure games; the rise (and fall) of Infocom and other commercial IF companies; and the current day status of IF.Various IF games are evaluated based on gameplay fairness, complexity, playability, etc. and how they helped to advance the field of interactive games. The story ends at around 2004, with a look at some modern-day IF games as well as IF creation systems, which can be found at the IF Archives.As a person who used to enjoy playing Zork I (and completing most of it), I find it good to know that even today, the field of IF isn't dead and I look forward to getting acquainted with IF again in the near future.The book can be read on-line on the site (with images) or in mobi or epub form. However, the epub form does not contain the images.
Poco más que nostalgia, me temo.
Great guide to the world of interactive fiction.
