Computer Games, and other diversions, played with words - be sure to read the comments



When I went off to college in 1988, my Plan was to major in English, minor in Computer Science, get a job as a technical writer, and eventually, somehow, write Interactive Fiction.


Best laid plans, and all that.




wait a minute. Why just interactive “fiction.” what about everything else?!??



The Muse in the Machine: Or, The Poetics of Zork - Robert Pinsky, 1995 in the NYT




Somewhere Nearby is Colossal Cave: Examining Will Crowther’s Original “Adventure” in Code and in Kentucky - (2007) It covers early interactive fiction, ELIZA, cave exploration, and other twisty, passages that push a lot of my language-coding buttons.
