When I go to the archive where do I go to find the games? I see a bunch of
stuff but not sure of where to go to download these games.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mike,
Most games, such as those found on the interactive fiction archive, are free to play. However, some of (or all of) the companies I've ever heard of that make these games end up charing a fee to play them, or in the Infocom/Level9
days, buying them on floppy disc.
Best Regards,
Hayden

Thanks a lot for the links and will check them all out. Are all interactive
fictions cost money or are there free stuff out there?

Hmmm, I can't recall azteca specifically, but remember how well you c an
interact with game elements depends very much on how much of a brain the
creator had.

I spent ages trying to get through the fireplace in the pentory prequal, ---

north, (sinse it was in the north wall), enter fire place "you can't enter
that" when it turned out I had to type in, ---- for the love of pete!

I don't remember any such issue with azteca, but I will confess this
business with the prequal, ---- and the fact that I can make no headway
whatsoever with the demo of the first game rather put me off malinch's
stuff.

As with regular fiction though, this just depends upon who wrote the game,
and there is a lot more interactive fiction available than just malinches'
stuff, ---- check those links I sent in the previous message for starters,
then have a look at http://www.wurb.com/if/ and search for something with
good reviews that looks interesting.

personally, I'd recommend stuff by emily short, paul obrian and aAndrew
plotkin, ---- but again this depends upon my personal preference for weerd
exploritory fantasy stuff.

Beware the Grue!

Well I am trying to figure out azteca and I got to embarrassing point of
the
jaguar room but can't figure out how to open the wall by the jaguar.

I see it is very similar to muds and sometimes the concepts on how it
works.

I will ask questions as I run across them but it looks great so far.

Hi mike.

No problem with traffic about if on this list, --- ask away.

If you are a newby though, you could do much worse than checking out
http://www.microheaven.com/IFGuide/step2.html which have a great
beginners'
guide.

I'd also recommend you try the game dreamhold by andrew plotkin found at
http://ifarchive.heanet.ie/if-archive/games/zcode/dreamhold.z8

you can run this with windows frotz, winfrotz (including the winfrotz tts
version which outputs directly to sapi), or anything which plays z code
game

files.

It's a really great story and adventure, but whats' more is it's probably
the best introduction to If I've seen. there are various ones knocking
about, but for a hands on in game intro going through how to give
commands,
and what puzles are, dreamhold is deffinately my favourite (not the least
because it's an incredibly interesting game and story in it's own right).

hth.

Beware the Grue!

Hi List:

Are there any interactive fiction fans out there? If so, can you please
contact me off list? I would sincerely appreciate a newbie to this area
some
help and explanations and do not want to fill this list with more
traffic.

Thanks in advance.
