Newsletter on retro text adventures: >Remember

Hi all,
I don’t recall having announced it here, but I am starting a monthly newsletter on retro text adventures, that I named >REMEMBER.

In it, I will talk about my current projects and news in that field, and also give an exclusive long-form article. For instance, this month’s article is on Sierra’s first game in France; next month will be on a more technical topic (and maybe i’ll alternate history and technical things; there will also be at some point post-mortem things on Tristam Island).

I’m sending it every 10th of the month, so the first issue is tomorrow! Signup here: http://www.hlabrande.fr/remember

Thanks!

The first three issues have been sent, which includes:
#1 - The French translation of Mystery House
#2 - Text compression in Infocom games
#3 - Portraits of 15 women who contributed to the 80s text adventure scene

My subscriber count is still growing so I probably still haven’t reached everyone I can reach :slight_smile: You can subscribe at hlabrande.fr/remember, then open the welcome email in a browser and click on “View past issues”.

Thanks, I read the latest issue with interest - especially the women in text adventures article. The story of St Bride’s is a fascinating cultural nugget that I was previously unaware of, despite having read seemingly every page of Wikipedia (I must have missed that one).

I signed up and got one “subscription confirmed” and one “Thanks for signing up” letter but none of them contained a link to past issues. Am I to expect more mail or am I missing the link somewhere?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it…
