I watched the documentary "GET LAMP" last night and it made me want to play a new Interactive Fiction game. I've played a good deal of Adventure, but never really got into Zork. Today that changes.

I already have two pages of maps and the world is starting to come together. The entire game will be streaming on twitch, so check it out.

Right now I've managed to get into this little murder shack in the woods and now I'm stealing stuff and hopefully getting into more trouble.

Again, I'm mapping it by hand so this is not a quick and easy endeavor.

 A staircase descends into the darkness. Time to go.

Atari Space Invaders

Just got back from a week at the beach. I brought my Flashback 2 with me, and played some Pitfall and Missile Command while recovering from sun, mini-golf, and Gulf Coast fishing. However, the one game I really wanted to play the entire time was Atari Space Invaders. 

I packed my laptop. I packed 3 Atari controllers. I packed the USB-to-Atari dongle. Certainly Stella was already loaded on this computer. It wasn't. Surely the cabin wifi would work. It didn't (and, also, it didn't matter).

Now I'm back and I've already raided Ice Crown Citadel (see: Warld of Worcorft) and I'm going to binge on a few hours of Space Invaders. Check it out on if you're awake.
