A Major Poet’s Work in Inform 7

by Nick Montfort · , 5:39 pm

I’m pleased to announce, and link to, the first work in Inform 7 by a major poet. Now, it does compile without any trouble in its current form, but the file might need further editing to actually produce a playable, enjoyable game. Is anyone up to it?

    I’m not up to it, but wow, this is potentially awesome.

    You have to delete “That is spread, it shuts and it lifts and awkwardly not awkwardly the centre is in standing.” for it to actually compile, but it’s still impressive. Good catch! :)

    I think you’re using an earlier version of Inform 7. It compiles as is on public beta build 5T18, which was the latest version when I posted this.
