I'll never forget my first IF experience. It was Colossal Caves and it my Grandpa had installed it on my first computer, his old DOS computer that had become outdated when he upgraded to a better computer and was given to me. Though numerous other games were on it, I loved Colossal Cave the most as the parser gave me a feeling of interaction not found within any game yet. The feeling only increased after my parents obtained an Apple IIgs from our school and I enjoyed games like Zork and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. While I never knew it was called "Interactive Fiction", I loved it, even as it began to fade into obscurity during the 90s.
Many years later, I wanted to create another one but didn't want to go through the code. That's when I found Inform. After tinkering around with it, I made a new IF in record time and though I'm still learning many of the technicalities, I'm finally able to easily create the IF games of my dreams. Though I mainly make them for myself and my wife, I hope to publish IF in the future when my skills grow to the level expected of published IF. In the meantime, I do enjoy playing and reviewing IF published on the site so I hope to see you on the site!
