Remember infocom? Remember the babel fish? I remember that *%^$#@ babel fish… If you, too, want to craft its like or work on more ambitious narratives for branching games of all sorts, then the Free Workshop Panel: Interactive Fiction at the Maelstorm Collaborative Arts/Theater Ninjas, Saturday, May 26 from 11 am to 1 pm is the place for you.


They say:

Dive into the twisting maze of interactive fiction design with this free workshop panel. We will discuss popular tools for writing Interactive Fiction, strategies for planning for branch narratives & multiple endings, and tips to avoid common pitfalls (aka how to not make your players/readers hate you)! Whether you are a coder, a writer, or a player who doesn’t want to be eaten by a grue, you’ll learn more about this fun and innovative genre that is more relevant than ever.
