Deadline Enchanter news

I’m really pleased to say that Deadline Enchanter was a finalist for three XYZZY Awards-for Best Writing, Best Story, and Best Use of Medium-and won the XYZZY for the latter. Needless to say-considering I’m decidedly Not a Programmer, to find an audience for any of my game-creation endeavours is a giant thrill. I’m really appreciative of everyone who worked on Inform 7-designers, extension-creators, helpers of all stripes.

As an aside: It’s been awhile since I played my first text adventure-and I had a weird realization that it WASN’T an Infocom work; rather, it was Scott Adams’ Pirate Adventure on my Texas Instruments TI994/A (combo cartridge and cassette!). Never really got that far.
