This is a response to volume 3, Tomás Card Number 7 ("Interactive Fiction? Yes!")...
I love the idea of using the desert islands for a setting. We have all the characters we need right now! We can use ourselves and the 6 people and the food and all the other stuff. Hmmm... Could we make up the dangers and wonders of our own islands and then we travel to each others islands so that we know our own island but no one else's?
OR we could do a story like Crab fiction using our islands.
This is too good to be true.
Tomas (how do I make an accent by the way?)
[Editor's note: an acute accent is made by holding down the option key while typing a small e, and then typing the letter to be accented, as in Tomás!]
Have you ever played MYSTERY FUN HOUSE? It was the first one I played and really was fun. I played it on a TI though. You know, another way we can cooperate with interactive fiction is by playing the same game at the same time or by asking each other for help on games.
Another fun one is Ray Bradbury's FAHRENHEIT 451. It begins where the book left off. You have to find Clarise and you identify yourself to the other underground people by quoting from books. I haven't finished it yet and I doubt it is on the Mac. It is fun to play with though.
