Adding a section for interactive fembot fiction

Postby darkbutflashy » Thu Mar 11, 2010 2:47 am

Greetings FC staff!

I'm sure you already noticed NukuNookee released a small, yet interesting fembot-related interactive fiction game.
http://www.fembotcentral.com/viewtopic.php?t=8285

He is currently on development. I already played it a little, browsed to the sources and so on. Must confess, now I'm really hooked up to writing a fembot IF myself.

I've successfully set up Gargoyle, a glulx interpreter, to play Nukunookee's game. But that took me a while and wasn't so easy. No packages for my favourite Linux distribution. :cry: There are other interpreters which may be installed easier but to hook up more of the folks here to reading/writing fembot IF, an interpreter written in Java is better, I think. For that, there is Zag: http://wso.williams.edu/~jon/zag/.

Now my request: Could you make a section or site for fembot IF by offering the games and Zag for download, like it is done on the Zag demo page above?

Hmm. Never had a fembot gaming section before.

I think this is already covered by the Character Play section we have.

I thought that board section was for human-human err. fembot-human interaction. My request was to make a site where IF games with fembot theme could be played "online" (its not really online as Zag is a Java Webstart application).

That way a lot more people will try out the games. Maybe we even find other authors.
