June 4th: Combination Online/Offline Playthrough

This week, the SF Bay Area IF Group is going to try something that (to the best of my knowledge) has never been done before: we’re going to try to play some interactive fiction in a combination online/offline event.

Every Saturday at 11am Pacific, ClubFloyd meets online to play interactive fiction together in ifMUD.

On Saturday, June 4th we’ll meet in person (location TBD) in front of a big monitor and a streaming webcam; we’re going to try playing a ClubFloyd game in person together with everyone playing online.

Which game? Uh, well, we’ll be playing my game, “Choice of Broadsides,” which now has an offline command-line version specifically designed for ClubFloyd. :slight_smile:

(The location will most likely be my office in San Francisco, right by Montgomery St. BART, but I’ll have to confirm that on Tuesday.)

Will it work? Will it be a catastrophe? Nobody knows. That’s why you should be there, either logged into ifMUD at 11am Pacific or in person at the SF Bay Area IF Meetup!
