Message from Jim Aikin:
It would help if I have some idea (ahead of time) of the amount of
experience attendees have with Inform.
If (and only if) you're planning to attend, please send me an email
([address removed]) and tell me:
(a) Never tried writing IF before.
(b) Tried once or twice with another language, never tried Inform 7.
(c) Tried Inform 7 a little bit, would like to know more.
(d) I'm working on a game in Inform 7.
(e) I'm working on a game in ___________ (development system).
(f) I've written and released one or more games in __________
Also, any other facts or questions that you feel might be relevant,
such as, "How the !@#$%^& do I create new actions in Inform?"
I really would like to hear from you about this. If I get fewer than
three responses, I may just assume that nobody cares, which would make
the drive from Livermore in to Berkeley rather a pointless grind.
Bringing your own laptop is a good option, if you're having coding
problems. Please install Inform 7 beforehand, however. We won't have
time to spend on installation issues.
Jim Aikin has agreed to give us a tutorial on how to
develop interactive fiction in Inform! Newbies, I promise you: if
you're clever enough to play interactive fiction games, you can write
Technically true (for non-trivial values of "clever"), but there are a
few wrinkles you'll need to understand. That's one of the things we'll
Already know Inform? You're welcome come and share advice and provide
Yes, please do. There's a lot of high-end stuff (such as I6 inclusions)
that I don't know.
