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.

Fingertips: I'm Having a Heart Attack, by Andrew Schultz (2012)

(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!

Games with non-standard directions - 23 votes for 17 games; created December 28, 2014
I'm wondering about games (primarily parser) with weird directions beyond NW/SW/SE/NE, up, down or inside/outside. I like the example in...
