Just in this debate, i thought this site and artical about the infocom text
adventure games might be of use.
I'd like to point out that 1, I agree hole heartedly with the web master, and
2, he's had the page up for about six years and no company has batted an
I'd stil prefer to actually have the company formally state that the games are
abandonware for obvious reasons, but given the small amount of audio games, and
the work which has gone into their production I'd be very much inclined to this
position if all else fails, ---- with the obvious proviso (as the webmaster
here says about the old Infocom games), that the second code factory change
their minds on the game status, any abandonware copies would hense forth be
counted as illegal and any self-respecting gamer or games website would remove
them from his/her computer or web space.
Please see http://if.illuminion.de/infocom.html
For the full position.
Beware the Grue!
