I played tons of Infocom games as a kid. I loved them. Then I discovered other people on the Internets still loved them, too.

I like to try to write, too, but it's been quite a learning experience. I'm still leaving obvious stuff out, and I'm still going in for the sort of crazily abstruse puzzles that made Infocom such a neat profit in hintbooks. But I want to learn.

Ailihphilia, by Andrew Schultz (as N. Y. Llewellyn) (2018)
(7 ratings)
No need for aibohphobia. It's polite on the Zarfian cruelty scale -and- will let you jump to the exciting conclusion if your 2-hour judging period is almost up!

Fingertips: I'm Having a Heart Attack, by Andrew Schultz (2012)
(11 ratings)
It's your time to make a statement. Make sure your nerves don't fail before your heart does.

Captain Cutter's Treasure, by Garry Francis   May 31, 2021
