Contribute code to a text adventure using Inform 7

Judy wants to contribute code to Lizzard’s text adventure about The Mushroom Farm! It is called rhizome: GitHub - lizzard/rhizome and it is using this amazing code editor / IDE / framework / natural language processor / game engine called Inform: http://inform7.com

download inform7
git clone
set up keys again on computer and github
add to the README, like where to download inform7 and some basics about how to use it
submit pr
liz merges pr
contribute some actual code
link to the PR here, write down my thoughts about using inform7, and select that reply as the solution to this quest =)

If we get people on Talkgroup comfortable with Inform 7 we should have a game jam!

that would be so awesome! the tiny bit of time i’ve spent looking at inform has completely blown my mind. it saves all the steps you tried while playing and constructs a tree of possible options! it lets you write code in complete sentences! it constructs a map of your rooms! i can’t believe how wonderful this tool is!

It really is an amazing system that Graham Nelson and the interactive fiction community have managed to build. I was very heartbroken for a very long time that it was all proprietary; im so glad their finally liberating it.

I don’t think it gets the attention it deserves, in part because the final product isn’t as flashy as some but I find the whole thing crazy compelling.
