Academic talk on IF, October 30

Mathbrush and I are giving a public lecture on IF on October 30. Feel free to attend if you’re in the area.

The emphasis will be on tracing the history of IF from the 1970s to today as a case study in the evolution of a computer game genre. Time permitting, we’ll also briefly discuss the use of IF as a teaching tool and Inform 7 as a natural-language-based development platform.

That’s October 30, at 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time). It’s in Thompson 395 at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington, USA.

Maybe a podcast or a recording?

I’m in Kansas.


Let me check on that. Thanks for the suggestion.
