I am so stoked for this! :D :D
that's helpful, thanks!
Cool! I imagine a set like Midnight. Swordfight., Secret Agent Cinder and maybe... Magical Makeover would be interesting to juxtapose.
I'd be cool with it, and I'd be up for it! A buncha us were talking about this exact topic yesterday :D Do you have any ideas yet what game(s) you want to play?
I can't believe I forgot about Twine, sigh. Didn't know about the Russian IF competition at all too, thanks for linking!
hahaha today's song
thanks for doing these, Bruno!
Hello! Congrats on your first release! :D
中正恐慌 THE CCU HORROR is a Lovecraftian vanilla-twine, heavy on text (there is such a lot of it) and light on choices - lots of binary choices which immediately bottleneck. Its inspiration from Lovecraft can be seen in someone saying, "Praise Cthulhu! Praise Cthulhu! Cthulhu noster qui es in maribus: sanctificetur nomen tuum! adveniat regnum tuum; fiat voluntas tua, sicut in R'lyeh, et in Y'ha-nthlei!"
At the same time there's a hint of Chinese mythology - one of the NPCs is named after a legendary Chinese bird (who used to be a princess btw) - it's a very strange adventure, though admittedly you aren't really missing much...
Also: according to one of the reviews, Stink Bug Plague is meant as an educational thing, and in fact gets the player to read through research papers - though how many people will actually read through those remains to be seen.
whee, hello and welcome to /if!
2016 felt like an impossibly long year. I discovered many gems through &if, and the year's highlights include Tangaroa Deep, Emily Short's short translation Texture piece Endure, 1181, Open Sorcery, Epitaph, Her Majesty's Trolley Problem. There's a lot I've missed, haven't I?
2016 seems to have been the year I started writing IF in earnest. Not very good IF, but there was a surprising amount of it. (also it was the year I started using version control, which I feel like should be a landmark of some sort...)
There seems to have been a bumper crop of tools released/substantially improved in 2016, with Texture and ink (and inky) probably being the first that come to mind!
I'll see if I can get back up after IFComp - though I've never done novel-length stuff in IF!
I guess eventually I'll get round to Shepherd's Crown... and Dodger and Raising Steam, come to think about it.
The interviews looked visibly sleepy in one of my uni interviews... (I didn't get the place.)
Yay! Really enjoying Emily Short's column, thanks for sharing! :D
hehe porpentwines :3
Open Sorcery by Abigail Corfman is very good; it's about an AI learning about people and life.
I very much expected this to be a horror story... much like Tim Waggoner's Portrait of a Horror Writer (http://timwaggoner.com/portraitof.htm - warning for violence).
Trying out a new platform is always exciting! Looking forward to seeing it :B
Is the format.js usable already?
The premise of the show is that two police detectives in different eras (about 40 years apart) have a radio through which they can communicate, hence the title.
:] thank you!
Wasn't there a casting picture floating around the internet? Or was that headcanon O:
