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  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?
