There’s just been another big update to my Infocom bugs list.
New bugs have been added for almost every game. Many people have contributed to this new version (my e-mail backlog is almost clear), but special credit goes to Torbjörn Andersson (@eriktorbjorn), who’s been checking every interaction in every game and filing bug reports at The Infocom Files GitHub repo.
Some of his discoveries are spectacular, including how to pick locks in A Mind Forever Voyaging, how to shoplift the magic carpet in Spellbreaker, and how to win without
Once again, if you’re someone who still likes to play around with Infocom’s text adventures, I’d love to hear about any bugs you find. I’m still especially looking for fatal bugs (which cause a crash or lock up) in Border Zone, Hollywood Hijinx, The Lurking Horror, Nord & Bert, Stationfall, Trinity, Wishbringer, or The Witness. It would also be great if anyone could find a way to detach or destroy a body part in Hollywood Hijinx, Nord & Bert, Sorcerer, or Stationfall.
Thanks as always to mine host, Fredrik Ramsberg (@fredrik).
