GET LAMP: The Text Adventure Documentary
Google Tech Talk (more below) March 7, 2011 Presented by Jason Scott. ABSTRACT Jason Scott will talk about making the documentary and we'll be screening some portion of the film. http://www.getlamp.com/ In the early years of the microcomputer, a special kind of game was being played. With limited sound, simple graphics, and tiny amounts of computing power, the first games on home computers would hardly raise an eyebrow in the modern era of photorealism and surround sound. In a world of Quake, Half-Life and Halo, it is expected that a successful game must be loud, fast, and full of blazing life-like action. But in the early 1980s, an entire industry rose over the telling of tales, the solving of intricate puzzles and the art of writing. Like living books, these games described fantastic worlds to their readers, and then invited them to live within them. They were called "computer adventure games", and they used the most powerful graphics processor in the world: the human mind. Rising from side projects at universities and engineering companies, adventure games would describe a place, and then ask what to do next. They presented puzzles, tricks and traps to be overcome. They were filled with suspense, humor and sadness. And they offered a unique type of joy as players discovered how to negotiate the obstacles and think their way to victory. These players have carried their memories of these text adventures to the modern day, and a whole new generation of authors have taken up the torch to present a new set of places to explore. Get Lamp is a documentary that will tell the story of the creation of these incredible games, in the words of the people who made them. Speaker Info: Jason Scott ( http://www.getlamp.com/director.html ) Jason Scott is a digital historian and archivist who specializes in early microcomputer history and dial-up bulletin board systems. He is the webmaster of textfiles.com, a collection of BBS-era textfiles that has been open to the public since 1998. In 2001, he began filming a documentary about BBSes called "BBS: The Documentary", an 8-episode mini-series about BBSes spanning 25 years and totalling five and a half hours in length. This documentary series was released on 3 DVDs in early 2005. He has been playing text adventures since he was 10, and to this day does not understand why the rod scares the bird.

Text-based game
Text-based game A text game or text-based game is a video game that uses text characters instead of bitmap or vector graphics Text-based games were a popular form of interactive fiction in the 1980s1 Contents 1 Overview 2 MUD 3 Roguelike 4 See also 5 References Overview Text games are typically easy to write and require less processing power than games with graphics, and thus were more common from 1970 to 1990 However, terminal emulators are still in use today, and people continue playing MUDs multi-user dungeon and exploring interactive fiction Many beginning programmers still create these types of games to familiarize themselves with a programming language,2 and contests even now are held on who can finish programming a roguelike within a short time period, such as seven days3 While many of the earliest computer games Adventure, Zork relied on language parsing due to the command line-driven, teletype-terminal mainframe environments in which they were developed, the phrase "text-based" is taken to refer not to the user input though generally keyboard-based but rather to exclusive use Text-based game Click for more; https://www.turkaramamotoru.com/en/text-based-game-3691.html There are excerpts from wikipedia on this article and video

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Infocom Playthrough 30th Anniversary Edition
This is a real time play through of the entire Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Infocom text based adventure from start to finish with no errors except a few spelling mistakes! The game came out in 1984 but was recreated in the early 2000's by the BBC with nice graphics. History There was a time when computer games didn't have graphics. Or at least they couldn't have graphics and sound at the same time. They certainly couldn't have graphics, sound and enough content to keep even a human being amused for more than a few minutes. So they had text. This was radical - a computer game you could control by typing in commands. The game would then respond to your commands with a breathtakingly prescient understanding of your intent. Or not. Usually not - the early text parsers (circa 1977) weren't that bright. But, as long as you limited yourself to what the game understood and the game designers wrote creatively enough to misunderstand you in a humorous and entertaining fashion, it all worked. It therefore stands to reason that any game which combined a really good programmer with a really good writer was likely to do well. So when Steve Meretzky of Infocom got together with Douglas Adams to create a game based around the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the result was never going to be less than interesting and more than likely insane. So it proved - the Hitchhiker's Guide adventure game was one of the best-selling games of its era, selling some 350,000 copies. In 1984. Then graphics games came along and the computer using portion of the human race forgot all about 500,000 years of language evolution and went straight back to the electronic equivalent of banging rocks together - the point'n'click game. Infocom and most of its competitors went to the wall - signaling the arrival of the post-literate society. That's the way it's been for most of the last dozen years. The 20th anniversary edition was still essentially a text game. The Infocom origins of the game were still evident, from the opening credits to the 'Help' message. . It was not an attempt to produce a fully animated version, the graphics as followed in the tradition of E. H. Shepard's illustrations for A.A. Milne's books - they didn't reflect all the events described. Most of the images rightly remained, to quote Simon Jones, "in the universe of your head." The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Game - 20th anniversary edition The game was put together by a 4 person team, with Rod Lord supplying design brilliance, Sean Sollé the brains behind the game code, Roger Philbrick designing and coding the entire supporting site, and Shimon Young coding the Flash front end to create the lovely looking final product. For small team, their efforts made a big impact, and not only raised the traffic to the Radio 4 website by 1000%, but also scooped a BAFTA. Despite its runaway success, in later years the game had been left to languish on some mothballed pages on a server that was due for demolition to make way for a high speed server array… The 30th anniversary edition The game was spotted languishing on these pages, quietly ticking over with up to 70 visitors on a good day. The time seemed right for a spit and polish and to re-house it on a shiny new server just before the old ones were switched off for good. An already cantankerous game with a penchant for killing people in a variety of amusing ways, the game has not become more friendly while sulking unloved and unnoticed. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Game - 30th anniversary edition The game is still the same wonderful piece of interactive fiction that Douglas Adams wrote and Steve Meretzky programmed, but in finding it a new home, a few changes needed to be made. The old Flash game would not work on the new servers, and in porting it to a new HTML5 incarnation, several innovations took place. We were able to build in a larger, handier interface, with additional keys and functionality, and build in the ability to tweet from the game. Then things started to get silly. Having covered the basics, we decided to slip in an ‘Any’ key, just because we could. The $, % and ^ symbols were replaced with new ones for the Altarian Dollar, Flanian Pobble Bead and the Triganic Pu, not because they are needed in the game, but just because we felt like it. We then decided that rather than having a simple functionality where the user could tweet, we would allow the game itself to tweet, based on the actions of users in the game. This was when the game's personality started to shine through. This may or may not prove to have been a good idea… You can try the game yourself here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1g84m0sXpnNCv84GpN2PLZG/the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy-game-30th-anniversary-edition

Bedlam Text Adventure for the TRS-80 Color Computer
Bedlam is one of the iconic text adventure games released by Radio Shack for the Color Computer, it originally appeared on the TRS-80 Model 1 and 3 computers, and like a few other titles, such as Pyramid 2000 and Raaka Tu, it made it's way to the CoCo. Like many text adventures of the day, your job is to explore a world using one or two word commands like "go south" or "look room" or "get torch" to interact with your world, text adventure games are very much like interactive fiction. What makes Bedlam so unique, is that it's set in a mental hospital, you away in a padded room, and your single goal is to survive and escape. Along the way you meet a dynamic cast of characters, like Houdini, Picasso, Napolen Bonaparte, and the not so friendly medical staff like the mad doctor and nurse ratchet. In addition to the unique setting of the game, it's also unique in that the escape solution is different each time you play, and your interactions with the various characters, and the characters themselves will change each time. I was actually surprised I was able to complete this game successfully on my first try in over 30 years, and in roughly an half hour, not bad!

Scott Adams Interview from GET LAMP
Scott Adams is an Interactive Fiction author who founded Adventure International, this first computer game company ever created. This is from the interview sessions that were used in the making of the excellent Interactive Fiction documentary, GET LAMP. The filmmaker's comments are at the bottom of this description. Please note that I merely performed some light editing work on this video. Its original form can be found at the archive.org link below. I am not the filmmaker or interviewer of this video. GET LAMP is a documentary filmed by Jason Scott. I obtained permission from Jason Scott to edit these interviews and host them on my channel, I hold no claims to the rights of this material, nor am I profiting in any way from this video. For ordering and information: http://www.getlamp.com Original edited interview footage: http://archive.org/details/GETLAMP-ScottAdams Jason Scott's notes: Scott Adams is considered one of the giants of adventure games, especially text-based adventures (The Scott Adams Grand Adventures (SAGA) series is especially cited). He is the founder of Adventure International, which sold software for a variety of platforms, mostly involving entertainment. This company grew wildly through the early 1980s but eventually went bankrupt in the inevitable industry shake-out, but should be considered one of the top "old-school" microcomputer software companies. His adventures were of the two-word parser variety, with sweeping general themes: the pirate adventure, the mystery game, the jungle. From Scott Adams' own website: "Scott was the first person to put an Adventure game (also known as Interactive Fiction) on a personal computer. This was in 1978 and the computer was a 16k Radio Shack TRS-80 model I. Scott went on to write over a dozen different adventure games for the personal computers of the 1980s. He is credited with starting the entire multi billion dollar a year computer game industry. Many people have written Scott and explained how his early games help led them into a career in computers today. Scott is 50 years old now and living in Wisconsin. He is married and has 5 children." Scott divorced Alexis, his wife and co-creator of some of the adventures, a good number of years ago, and has since remarried with a large family. Alexis continued to live in Florida until her passing in April of 2008. This interview was nearly missed because it had been snowing rather fiercely and my rental car slid out of control multiple times getting to the hotel - Scott graciously drove into town where I was and picked me up, taking me out to his farm to conduct the interview. A huge thanks to him for his generosity in sitting for this taping, and contributing so much to the final work. Mr. Adams has said in several contexts that he finds text adventures boring in the modern world, and spends a lot of his "gaming time" online with games like Everquest, Baldur's Gate, and so on.

Go into the terminal and type in Zork. It is a text based game. Zork was one of the first interactive fiction computer games and an early descendant of Colossal Cave Adventure. The first version of Zork was written in 1977--1979 on a DEC PDP-10 computer by Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels, and Dave Lebling, and implemented in the MDL programming language. All four were members of the MIT Dynamic Modelling Group. Zork can run on modern Z-machine interpreters, as well as the older models it was made for originally. "Zork" was originally MIT hacker slang for an unfinished program. The implementors briefly named the completed game Dungeon, but changed it back to Zork after receiving a trademark violation notice from the publisher of Dungeons & Dragons. Zork has also been adapted to a book series. Three of the original Zork programmers joined with others to found Infocom in 1979. That company adapted the PDP-10 Zork into Zork I-III, a trilogy of games for most popular small computers of the era, including the Apple II, the Commodore 64, the Commodore Plus/4, the Atari 8-bit family, the TRS-80, CP/M systems and the IBM PC. Zork I was published on 5¼" and 8" floppy disks. Joel Berez and Marc Blank developed a specialized virtual machine to run Zork I, called the Z-machine. The first "Z-machine Interpreter Program" ZIP for a small computer was written by Scott Cutler for the TRS-80. The trilogy was written in ZIL, which stands for "Zork Implementation Language", a language similar to LISP. Personal Software published what would become the first part of the trilogy under the name Zork when it was first released in 1980, but Infocom later handled the distribution of that game and their subsequent games. Part of the reason for splitting Zork into three different games was that, unlike the PDP systems the original ran on, micros did not have enough memory and disk storage to handle the entirety of the original game. In the process, more content was added to Zork to make each game stand on its own. Zork distinguished itself in its genre as an especially rich game, in terms of both the quality of the storytelling and the sophistication of its text parser, which was not limited to simple verb-noun commands ("hit grue"), but some prepositions and conjunctions ("hit the grue with the Elvish sword").

Rogue Unboxing (PC) ENGLISH
Rogue Developer: Artificial Intelligence Design Systems Release Year: 1985 Genre: RPG Platform: PC Edition: US wikipedia.org: Rogue (also known as Rogue: Exploring the Dungeons of Doom) is a dungeon crawling video game by Michael Toy and Glenn Wichman and later contributions by Ken Arnold. Rogue was originally developed around 1980 for Unix-based mainframe systems as a freely-distributed executable, and later included in the official Berkeley Software Distribution 4.2 operating system (4.2BSD). Commercial ports of the game for a range of personal computers were made by Toy, Wichman, and Jon Lane under the company A.I. Design and financially supported by the Epyx software publishers. Additional ports to modern systems have been made since by other parties using the game's now-open source code. In Rogue, players control a character as they explore several levels of a dungeon as they seek the Amulet of Yendor located in the dungeon's lowest level. The player-character must fend off from an array of monsters that roam the dungeons. Along the way, they can collect treasures that can help them offensively or defensively, such as weapons, armor, potions, scrolls, and other magical items. Rogue is turn-based taking place on a square grid represented in ASCII or other fixed character sets, allowing players to have time to determine the best move to survive. Rogue implements permadeath as a design choice to make each action by the player meaningful: should the player-character's lose all their health from combat or other means, the character is dead, and the player must restart a brand new character and cannot reload from a saved state. The dungeon levels, monster encounters, and treasures are procedurally generated on each playthrough, so that no game is the same as a previous one. Rogue was inspired by text-based computer games such as the 1971 Star Trek game and Colossal Cave Adventure released in 1976, along with the high fantasy setting from Dungeons & Dragons. Toy and Wichman, both students at University of California Santa Cruz, worked together to create their own text-based game but looked to incorporate elements of procedural generation to create a new experience each time the user played the game. Toy later worked at University of California Berkeley where he met Arnold, the lead developer of the curses programming library that Rogue was dependent on to mimic a graphical display. Arnold helped Toy to optimize the code and incorporate additional features to the game. The commercial ports were inspired when Toy met Lane while working for the Olivetti company, and Toy engaged with Wichman again to help with designing graphics and various ports. Rogue became popular in the 1980s among college students and other computer-savvy users in part due to its inclusion in 4.2BSD. It inspired programmers to develop a number of similar titles such as Hack (1982) and Moria (1983), though as Toy, Wichman, and Arnold had not released the source code at this time, these new games introduced different variations atop Rogue. A long lineage of games grew out from these titles; while Rogue was not the first such dungeon-crawling game with procedural generation features, it became the namesake for the genre of roguelikes due to its popularity.

History of Star Trek Games (1971-2017) - Video Game History
Evolution of all Star Trek games from 1971-2017! The history of the Star Trek personal computer game franchise began as early as 1971, with a Star Trek text-only computer game written in BASIC. Many PC titles have since been published, and the franchise was one of the first based on a TV program to break into the young PC gamer market in the 1990s. Interplay, Simon & Schuster, MicroProse and Activision released most of the best-known Star Trek games between 2000 and 2003. Titles like Star Trek: Armada, Star Trek: Elite Force and Star Trek: Bridge Commander were all published during this period, as were over half of all the other major Star Trek PC games. The absence of new titles after 2003 was due in large measure to a split and subsequent lawsuit between Activision and Viacom which ended in 2004. With the departure of Activision in 2003, the franchise under the tenure of Paramount effectively came to a close. Since the end of 2005, CBS has assumed most franchise management, including games and other products. Even with no new licensed titles released during 2003-2006, the older games like Armada and Elite Force still have an avid fan base which keeps the small community going. Development of the new Star Trek: Online title is complete and the game was made available for sale on February 2, 2010.

Using Computer Games to Support Democracy and Conflict Resolution
Video games can be fun to play. They also can teach people how to settle conflicts peacefully. This is a video game called Food Force. It can be downloaded from the Web site of the World Food Program. The groups Jennifer Parmalee says the game shows children the difficulty of getting food to areas of conflict. JENNIFER PARMALEE: It helps them feel like they can be part of a solution. Thats something empowering and fun for them. Another video game is called A Force More Powerful. It takes place in a city similar to Belgrade in the former Yugoslavia. Ivan Marovic designed the game. Ten years ago, he organized protests against Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. The president resigned after disputed election results in two thousand. He was arrested on war crimes charges, but died before his trial was completed. Marovic says his game shows non-violent ways to help remove oppressive governments. IVAN MAROVIC: Like strikes, boycotts, civil disobedience, street protests, in order to force the regime to either concede or to step down. Marovic says another goal is to win public support. He says the goal is to win the loyalty of people who support the government. Another goal is to keep up the interest of your current supporters. This game deals with the situation in Darfur, Sudan. The conflict in Darfur has displaced three million people. A Web site called Second Life was used to create the Darfur video game. Players can build their own make-believe world and contact others through voice and text messages. Scott Sechser works for Linden Labs, which created Second Life. He says the game lets players come in and see what is taking place in Darfur, listen to a family which left Darfur and is now in a refugee camp. The Second Life Web site is able to change text messages in English to other languages. Sechser says he has communicated with people from around the world. Other parts of Second Life help to support democracy and conflict resolution. They include a courtroom where people can learn about legal systems in a democracy. I'm Bob Doughty.

PLATO@50: An Early Community of Multiplayer Games
On June 3, 2010, the Computer History Museum hosted a 6-session conference on the PLATO learning system. Session 5 was entitled "PLATO Games: An Early, Robust Community of Multiplayer, Online Games." Session 5 Description: Social gaming is the fusion of computer games and digital communities. Some of the earliest instances of this occurred on the PLATO system, and were made possible by the PLATO system's technological innovations as well as a sufficiently open environment to allow the development of such games. The most popular PLATO games were engineered with text based communications and what are by today's standards simple graphics. The result was some of the earliest instances of digital environments that are both social and immersive. PLATO games are the ancestors of, among other games, today's massively multiplayer games. They possess key attributes of today's games: users find them compelling or addictive, they are difficult to balance and they facilitate interesting social behavior. Three creators of these games talk about their experiences and other panel members discuss the influence of the PLATO experience on the current world of simulation and gaming. Panel members are: Bruce Artwick, John Daleske, Dr. Brand Fortner, Rich Hilleman and Dr. Andrew Shapira. Moderated by John Markoff of the New York Times. PLATO Overview: PLATO was a centralized, mainframe-based system, with very sophisticated terminals connected to it. Its mission was to deliver education electronically at low cost. But it became much, much more than that. It quickly became home to a diverse online community that represented a microcosm of today's online world. Much of what we take for granted in today's hyper-active, always-on world of social media, blogs, and addictive computer games could be applied to what life was like on the PLATO system beginning in the mid-1970s. PLATO, an acronym standing for "Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching Operations," started as a project of the Coordinated Sciences Laboratory (CSL) at the University of Illinois in 1960. The original goal was to build on the mechanical "teaching machine" work of B.F. Skinner and instead see if it was possible to build a computer that could teach. In time they discovered not only was the answer yes, but computers could be extremely effective, and economically viable, at teaching large segments of the population. In the 1970s, Control Data Corporation entered into a series of agreements with the University of Illinois to commercialize the PLATO system and bring it to the marketplace. The result was a great expansion of PLATO throughout the U.S. and the world, with systems installed in Canada, France, Belgium, Israel, Sweden, Australia, South Africa, United Kingdom, and elsewhere. Fifty years on, PLATO has left its imprint across a wide range of computing activities, from e-learning to social media, from online multiplayer games to major hardware and software innovations.
