    Interesting article! Very well done! It's good to see interactive fiction (also known as text adventure games) get more of the attention it deserves.
    In the same vein, there's a modern day interactive fiction publisher releasing new works of commercial interactive fiction that I think people
    should know about. This interactive fiction publisher is Malinche Entertainment. Their website is http://www.malinche.net and they've got a
    lot to offer anyone interested in interactive fiction/text adventure games.

    I guess I am a tad bit older. I remember a program called "advent" (aka Colossal Cave Adventure) on a DEC PDP-11 computer. We would dial up with a 110-baud acoustic coupler modem and a dumb terminal (VT52). I spent hours and hours playing this. Never figured out the end game, though. If you every find yourself in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike, you'll know what I mean. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossal_Cave_Adventure
