Game Submissions Complete: Dozens will be Included

Posted: January 18th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Interactive Fiction, production | 4 Comments »

I issued a general call for interactive fiction to be included in the GET LAMP package. Many people responded! While I haven’t finished making the final list, and a bunch of testing has to happen now, it looks like roughly 40 works will be included on the DVD-ROM section, as well as a downloadable archive of a few hundred works under a system called EAMON.

With one exception, all of these works are already available online and for free – the GET LAMP website will link to them all when I put the listing up. The point was mostly to provide a place for these works to reach locations and people who otherwise might not have thought to look them up. Interpreters will be included on the DVD-ROM, so a machine without an internet connection will be able to play these fine. Interpreters will be on the DVD-ROM for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

I thank everyone who took the time to put together packaging or provide permission for their work to be distributed on DVD-ROM. It is very appreciated.

    Eamon… I remember writing games for that on the Apple ][ in middle school.

    I assume my submission is the one exception. I should make it clear that the game will be online and available for free once the DVD is public. It’ll be both at ifarchive.org and on my personal IF website.

    sounds better and better by the day. I hope it can ship to Brazil. :)

    EAMON? Holy cow, I remember writing an episode/adventure for that too. #44, Escape from the Orc Lair. In retrospect, it wasn’t very good, but I was a kid.

    Still, wow – I might actually be part of this documentary, in a way. Sweet. :)
