(This might take off, it might not, we’ll see.)
Just for fun, post a favorite/fun/interesting/enlightening/rare IF-related link!
It could be an article, or a video, or just about anything relating to everyone’s favorite pastime!
Maybe this will make for a fun topic to let people share and check out IF-related links that you might not have otherwise known about!
I’ll start! I just found and watched this Zork Postmortem talk by Dave Lebling. It’s a couple years old but I never saw it until today.
Don’t be shy! Post something! Here’s a chance to share random stuff!
MC Frontalot’s “It is Pitch Black” about how you’re likely to be eaten by a grue is made of awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nigRT2KmCE
Glasser’s postmortem on Coloratura is really, really good (this is my favorite page of it):
Aaron Reed’s “Interactive Fiction Time Lapse”
A perfectly executed video that demonstrates the amount of work and passion that’s involved in creating interactive fiction.
At the risk of posting something everyone already knows:
Clash of the Type-Ins is literally my favorite thing online today.
Jenni Polodna and Ryan Veeder play IF by telling the author what to type, over Skype.
Certainly not spoiler-free, but they don’t usually play the whole thing.
This old book: “Creating Adventure Games On Your Computer”

Which is a guide to programming text adventures in BASIC.
