    I was a huge fan of text adventures 'back in the day' and played most (if not all) of the Infocom games. Remember the 'invis-clue' books you could purchase for hints?
    I've been interested to see a new face on text adventures and have reviewed a couple recently: Pataphor (classic format with verbal twists) and Shady Brook (new interface but still a text based game). I recently finished Lifestream (same format as Shady Brook) and have just started Event [0] which is definitely text based in an environment that reminds me of '2001: A Space Odyssey' (more to follow on this one).
    Is anyone else enjoying this resurgence of 'graphic' text based adventures that focus on story rather than technology?

    I've never played a text adventure, but your posts and reviews sure make it sound tempting. :D

    My review of Lifestream is now posted at JA. I really liked the story and would recommend it to gamers with a fondness for narrative and story. I am looking forward to future titles from Unimatrix!

    I finished Event[0] last night and it is a very interesting game with a pretty smart parser. I am currently working on a review which I hope to deliver within the next few days. The adventure continues...
