I’m from Brazil and have just registered here. It was a long and epic quest to do so, since my IP was flagged and blocked for some unknown reason and it took me several days, with the help of one the admins (and the others who helped her!) to be able to create my account.
But here I am now.
I have always been a gamer and loved underground or older games. Not because I’m a hipster (far from it), but because of their depth and uniqueness. I’m an avid player or Dwarf Fortress and some roguelikes like Crawl, Brogue, CataclysmDDA and UnrealWorld, but also love IF. I must admit I have played few IF games so far, though I had played some when I was a teenager, but now I intend to go through some of the classics like the Zork trilogy and a lot of the new stuff too, of course (open to suggestions).
I have a major writing project which I think will take decades, in Esperanto, which I intend to apply into IF and maybe also making a game mixing IF and Roguelike elements (which, since I’m still to learn proper programming - probably python - I’ll need some help with in the future).
I’ll be posting some though I have about IF in Esperanto and why I recommend the idea to all writers, even native English speakers, in the “Ideal Language for Playing Interactive Fiction” thread, if any of you would be interested.
Kind regards to all and look forward to our interactions!
