The Boston IF meetup for October will be Tuesday, October 21, 6:30 pm, MIT room 14N-233.
The Boston Festival of Independent Games is coming up on September 13 at MIT. PR-IF will have a table demoing local IF. We also have two events scheduled:
Interactive Fiction Tutorial: Twine and Inform 7
(11:00 am – 11:45 am, Stata 144)
Caelyn Sandel and Andrew Plotkin show two popular IF tools, and give lightning demonstrations of how to build games in them.
Live Interactive Fiction: Coloratura
(3:15 pm – 4:45 pm, Stata 123)
We’ll run a live session of Lynnea Glasser’s creepy sci-fi adventure, Coloratura. The game will be up on the big screen; the audience calls out ideas for what to do next. Brad Smith performs the text as it is displayed, and provides live sound effects.
