Older Versions of Inform

Hello, I’ve always been fascinated by old softwares and how one might accomplish something without the cushy, modern programs we have today. This led me to research some old games and their development systems.

When i searched about inform, i only saw inform 5 as the oldest version available. Now i would like to ask if any of the older versions, preferably version 1 have been archived or is available somewhere or maybe there’re lost forever or maybe i just didn’t look hard enough?

Thank you for any replies!!

5.2 is the oldest archived version I know of.

What a shame but thanks for the answer!!

For anyone stumbling across this thread, a version as far back as Inform 2 has been located. See Ancient Inform versions (pre 6).
