As a young boy, I was introduced to Infocom games and played several on my Commodore 64. I only beat a few of them. Later, when I purchased the Lost Treasures of Infocom as a college student, I had better luck with them. I remember them fondly and think that they have had a meaningful effect on game design generally--that is, beyond the IF genre.

I am currently doing a replay of all of the Infocom IF titles and posting about it at kamineko.medium.com.

This effort has kindled an interest in modern IF. I don't have much exposure to contemporary titles--not even the classics. I hope to get to some of these stories in the near future.
