For Wednesday

For Wednesday, please start playing City of Secrets, which is available from this link.

To play this game, you will need an interpreter that can run .blb files. If you are using a Macintosh, then you can run such files using Zoom. If you are using Windows, then I suggest WinGlulxe.

As an optional reading, you may wish to look at Dennis Jerz’s article “Somewhere Nearby is Colossal Cave”, which you can find here. This is somewhat beyond the scope of what we’re talking about now, hence why I am not requiring you to read it, but it is a good example of a scholarly work on interactive fiction that pays attention to visuality and forensic materiality.
