Text Adventure confessions
I recall being somewhat upset/envious in HS when I learned that THE Infocom had made an official text adventure of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, because of the silly reason that in reading the books in middle school I had spent time on an attempt to build some of the spaces in the book in a text engine (don’t recall if it was TADS or MUSH or both at the time). The opening does read so much like a text adventure. Infocom proved it too.
