Using Linux 6L38, I’ve tried:
Edited Bronze, by Emily Short, revised for younger players by Brendan Desilets. Removes some references to suicide and sexuality to make it more appropriate for classroom use with younger students. (Available as a project file for download, which may in turn be edited or used to produce a stand-alone game file. The game already-compiled is also available below.)
Gentle Introduction to Inform, by Mark Engelberg. This heavily-commented sample game introduces room creation and description, object creation, doors, rules for creating a prologue and ending the game, character creation, asking characters questions, scoring, text variations, instead and after rules, and every turn rules. (Available as a project file for download.)
Both from inform7.com/teach/resources-by-grade/
Also, ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=1iqmpkn009h9gbug “Raising the Flag on Mount Yo Momma”
None of these works run without error in the inform authoring environment. Furthermore, I cannot find email addresses of authors to contact. Are these works maintained? Do I need to report these problems somewhere? I bet the failures are due to very simple things, but I am not skilled enough in writing inform to fix them myself. Please suggest how I might proceed.
