Interactive Fictions Still Alive
Posted on October 11, 2005
Do you remember MUDs or the old Infocom text-based adventure games for the Apple IIe? Well, interactive fiction games are still around. A recent post on the Guardian's games blog provides a few excellent links to interactive text adventures including The Interactive Fiction Archive. More games for downloading can be found at the IFComp 2005, a competition for short text adventures. The games blog' post even offers a link to an online version of Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy text adventure. As far as MUDs go there is always the MUD Connector, Yahoo's directory of MUDs, MUSHes, MOOs and the links found on the Wikipedia MUDs entry.
