I recently reread The IF Theory Reader cover-to-cover and I found it as interesting as the first time. Does anyone have any recommendations for other IF theoretical essays or even academical papers?
I’m thinking of in-depth analysis of one game, discussion of the literary qualities of IF in general or of a specific work, arguments on puzzle design, works on the player-PC relation,…
I’ve read and enjoyed Engaging the Paradoxical by Michael Spivey, Face it, tiger, you just hit the jackpot by Nick Montfort, Eric Eve’s essay on All Hope Abandon and some other shorter works.
So, any (preferably downloadable) ideas?
