    Interactive Fiction

    August 1, 2010 by Pyrrho314

    As I have posted previously it occured to me that the island would be a cool place to use for an interactive fiction world. I have put up the first public revision of these efforts... note, this is for the curious and early adopters only. I had merely gotten far enough with the Inform 7 language that I wanted to see about publishing it using Parchment, a Google Code project which converts Z-code into javascript. You don't have to know all that, just that it's an interactive text world using the Lost universe. You are desmond, and in the hatch with Kelvin (somewhere). A lot is missing, I have not added conversations. I'll tell you what goes on, which might be useful as it's so raw it might not be obvious, and it might not be clear where …

    I have checked out the state of IF and it is good. An amazing language for writing them called Inform7 is availalbe for free, and Google code project "parchment" will allow people to play them online and eventually for them to have online features.

    So I've been working on one, and it's really crude right now as I've just managed to learn the language decently after a lot of flailing. Inform7 reads like english... but it's an object oriented language (pretty much) and once one gets it, it starts to be really easy and do a lot of things for you.

    I have done Desmond in the Hatch with Kelvin, first he will have to follow Kelvin and kill him, then he will have to get the gun (you can see me get it) and try to commit suicide, which will cause Lo…

    Many are the people that have asked why didn't Richard react to recognizing the lost characters from the 70s but what I want to know is... he'd been tracking John Locke for decades, and he'd interacted with him as an adult. Why wouldn't Richard immediately meet with him, even if in some enigmatic way?

    answer: because it's about the characters.

    no really why?

    Great Idea?

    Anyone remember Zork or the interactive text version of The Hitchikers Guide? These sorts of games are no commercial anymore (so far as I know) but the tools to make them are free and open source. I was reading Lostpedia regarding DHARMA stations, and it was talking about this was north of that, etc, and I was thinking how fun it was getting those bits of information. And when people complain of no answers (which I do too in a way but...) it's pretty revealing how we have pretty reliable maps. And in a text game you only need the rough estimate anyway, it's much more like the geometry of a story than the geography of a physical place.

    These games work by describing the place your in, allowing you to do think ("light dynamite"…
