I am not a fan of applets (actually, I despise them), but I have found the one applet that almost justifies their creation. Anyone a former Infocom fan? How about a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fan? If you are both, you’ll love this one – Infocom’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (circa 1984) played online in its original text form at Brings tears to the eyes!

    Looks like some of you have forgotten how to get started, so (this will give away the first 10 points – read on at your own risk) here are the steps to get started. (The scary thing is that I still remember all this!)
    Turn on light
    Stand up
    Get gown
    Wear gown
    Look in pocket
    Eat analgesic
    Get screwdriver
    Get toothbrush
    Look in window
    Get mail
    Read mail
    Lie down
    Ask Ford about house
    Ask Ford about house
    You’re now in the pub and on your own. Enjoy! 🙂

    Thanks for the link Ben. I really miss the infocom games. My favorites were always the Enchanter series.

    MUDs copied from the old text based games, Amy. 🙂 Anyone here ever play A Mind Forever Voyaging? Infocom had -amazing- stories.
