Interactive Fiction

I have two interactive fiction games.

Click either of the below links and then on the next page click "play in browser."

"Interactive fiction" means the kinda game where you type things like "get lamp" and "go north" and such. Zork is maybe the most popular text adventure game to ever exist, though The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game is a close second. They were popular in, say, 1981 when typing things into computers was very rock and roll!

Both of these games were written in a special computer programming language called Inform. Inform is very cool in a nerdy way. It is a grammatically correct computer language, which means the source code reads like proper English. You can see the source code for my game Harold night here, for example. It (technically) is readable. Isn't that nuts?
