Get Lamp: a documentary about text adventure games (aka interactive fiction)

Looks cool. AND as part of that project they’ve made a video for MC Frontalot’s nerdcore track, It Is Pitch Dark, which is all about Zork and similar Infocom zaniness.

Text games are so frotzing cool. I mean, I’m crap at ones you can’t finish in a sitting, and do not mention that FRIGGING Babel Fish puzzle, but they’re great. In the past I’ve even tried my hand at writing a few in Inform 6 (sadly these died in a hard drive crashycrash episode, except for a few copies of the compiled games that may still survive somewhere).
