SF Bay Area Interactive Fiction Group Meetup

Happy New Year! I know of three cool new games to play this week.

- Emily Short just released her newest game, Counterfeit Monkey, and it's a doozy. You start the game with a full-alphabet letter remover, allowing you to transform "chard" into a "card" by removing the H. https://emshort.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/counterfeit-monkey/

- Andrew Plotkin wrote a choice-based game for Yuletide, "Bigger Than You Think." http://eblong.com/zarf/zweb/btyt/ Like an old-timey "Choose Your Own Adventure" novel, but when you pick up inventory items at dead ends, you keep them when you restart.

- Choice of Games released "Choice of Kung Fu" by Alana Joli Abbott; I think it's one of our finest releases yet, right up there with "Choice of Broadsides." http://www.choiceofgames.com/kung-fu/

Sick of Cheeseboard pizza? You're in luck; they're closed on Saturday. I'll bring Zachary's pizza instead.

    Had a great time and look forward to the next one. The venue was interesting, too, and fit the group well. I swear some of those things (in the museum) I hadn't seen since the days of Babbages or before...

    Who here enjoys creating IF? I have never done anything past a quick "let's see" project, but I am feeling my oats. My secondary goal is to get students learning by playing, designing, and writing IF. Step One: Yes, I know it's Not Minecraft.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
