Play Interactive Fiction in One Minute

Enjoy quality text adventures quickly and effortlessly, no assembly required.

One of the best things about interactive fiction—the fancy-schmancy name for text adventures, but also a good catchall term for the type of game, since they don’t always strictly rely upon text—is how easy it is to get up and running with a game. Installing an interpreter (the “platform” for the games) and getting some adventures for it [Hack #64] is much easier than poking around with MAME or emulating old operating systems.

For the moment, however, we’ll set aside even operations as simple as those in favor of showing how you can get started with interactive fiction inside of a minute; no assembly required. All you need is a web browser, preferably one with Java enabled, and a capacity for lateral thinking.
