  1. Interesting article! Very well done! It’s good to see interactive fiction (also known as text adventure games) get more of the attention it deserves.
    In the same vein, there’s a modern day interactive fiction publisher releasing new works of commercial interactive fiction that I think people
    should know about. This interactive fiction publisher is Malinche Entertainment. Their website is http://www.malinche.net and they’ve got a
    lot to offer anyone interested in interactive fiction/text adventure games.
