Hello! Another new one here. The first IF I played I had to load from a cassette tape. I missed the IF revival in the 90s and 00s until 2010 or so, then played often (I suck at parser), and I've been doing Twine for a couple of years now. I finally released a story for last Ectocomp and I'm working on a largish game for IFcomp. I'm a regular at the Euphoria chatroom.

Hi pseudavid, glad to see you here!

I had a TRS-80 from Radio Shack and remember those cassette tapes hanging on the wall in Ziploc bags. I was so curious about "Bedlam" since it was the first story I remember that was not sword and sorcery (Infocom was still on Zorks and Enchanters) and it was so difficult and non-interactive. I believe they were working in 16k of memory and didn't have disc access. Nearly any current IFComp parser entry is miles beyond that these days!

Fos1 here. I have been hanging around for a few months. What a great place!

I also go back to the Altair and TRS-80 days. Anyone remember FS1? (on tape?)

I am already a retired chemist and school teacher. I expect to retire again early next year and spend a lot of time writing. I wish I had come back to the IF scene 10+ years ago. I am fascinated.

So much to learn, so little time....

Thanks everyone,
v/r

I forgot to introduce me.
So I'm Julian (zzulian) a French national, I'm 34. I'm a lecturer in Soft. Development. I'm passionate with all about procedural generation, text adventure, interactive fiction. I like to make tools about it because I always have special needs... :) Last year I made JNG (Java Novel Generator) and more recently IFC (Interactive Fiction Creator) and still under development. For more info about it you can check greenorb.free.fr

Currently I'm making a Fiction template to generate "infinite" versions of the same story. It's like to simulate all possibilities that can occur in the story, simulate all player's choices.
I'm also working on a algorithm to generate automatically a story skeleton for my interactive fiction creator...
I like also to see the ideas of other people, I was very impressive about Inkle, the scripting language made by a small company. It's open source, seems very interesting. But when his creator compare each feature of the tool with a programming language... Sometimes I'm not in mood for programming or using a scripting language...

Cheers.

Hey folks! I'm rather new to this scene but I'm working on a new project and stumbled upon IFDB and IF.org. Hoping to throw up a post and get some feedback.

WELCOME HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018 New Year is the time, when we all want to start on a good note.naya saal mubarak ho shayari 2018 It is the time when you want to wish each other that the coming year is filled with happiness, joys and loads of success. New year is a symbol of positivity. By welcoming the new year on a positive note, it is important that we let go of all the negativities accumulated in the year gone by. Just like with the sun rise every day a new day begins with the new year people associate a new chapter in life to begin. It is important we start afresh and welcome the new year. The new year brings with it, its own set of aspirations, hope and desires.

Good morning, folks!

Just call me B...

I am new to the world of IF.
Use to LOVE Star Wars KOTOR, does that count?
I have started playing them via the app Google Play store

Few things about me

- I am a lazy foolio at heart but an entrepreneur by desire.
- I love creating universes and finding alternative ways to tell stories.
- I'm a sucker for anything that sparks the human thought or is just off the wall - Think Fight Club.
- I am blessed to work from home taking care of two littles while working as a creative.

I think that's all for now!
Looking forward to being part of the community!

B -
