My first IF was Hitchhiker's on a Commodore 64 at a friend's house; I was insanely jealous, as I only had a TI-99/4A. Having no text adventures for it, I began writing my own. Later, I was Sysop of The Gameroom BBS in upstate NY, as well as co-sysop of two other boards, all of which featured text-heavy games such as L.O.R.D. At that time, I began working on a similar game (to be called "Chimera") in Turbo PASCAL. Unfortunately, this was right when the Internet was growing exponentially. As a direct result, all of the BBS's I was affiliated with closed down, effectively ending the project.
Recently, I've rediscovered IF, and have begun scripting a game on Inform 7. I was very surprised to find such a vital, thriving community (also a bit bummed I didn't find you all sooner), and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!
