Sorry for the lateness in announcing this; it’s been a rather busy day packaging GET LAMPs. You people order a lot of GET LAMPS!

The Boston/Cambridge Interactive Fiction group is called The People’s Republic of Interactive Fiction, and they’ve been having regular meetings for over a year now. I’ve attended a few, and they’re always great.

But if you live in the New England area, and loved Infocom games, this is a pretty special event they’ve got going.

Tomorrow, Halloween, they will be playing The Lurking Horror, the Infocom horror game meant to exact a feeling of Lovecraftian suspense and mood.  It’ll be streamed over Ustream.tv, so you can watch them play along.

After this, comes a tour of some of the locations at MIT that inspired the game… led by Dave Lebling, creator of The Lurking Horror.

Need I say more?
