The Boston IF meetup for November will be Monday, November 24, 6:30 pm, MIT room 14N-233.
Famed PR-IF member *Andrew Plotkin* has released his all-new, full-scale IF game: Hadean Lands. Four years of development! Four years of apologetic Kickstarter update posts! All done now!
You can purchase this wonder for a mere five US bucks on via Humble, Itch.IO, or the iOS App Store.

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.
