Inspired by the film Get Lamp: The Text Adventure Documentary (watch), I decided I wanted to play one of these games. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have started playing Photopia. However, I thought I would post some links that may be useful to someone wishing to know more about the genre of interactive fiction and text based adventures.
The Interactive Fiction Archive
Baf’s Guide to the Interactive Fiction Archive
All of these sites have a wealth of information about interactive fiction. As I’m so new to the scene, I’m still getting a feel for what’s where and such. The beginners guides that I have read so far are on Brass Lantern.
