The guy that brought us a documentary on Bulletin Board Systems is now at work on documentary on text adventure games. I believe it’s going to be released under the Creative Commons license, and shot in stunning HiDef, those talking heads are going to look really nice. Adventure games are, apparently, known as interactive fiction. I never thought of it like that.
Ah, Zork. Is there anything you can’t teach us about ourselves? Not like that goddamned HHGTTG, with it’s prescriptive plotline – what a POS.
hmmm. I was never that much into BBSs, though I did go to uni with the guy who wrote the Ezycom BBS software.
Adventure Games though, were a lot of fun.
