Read full description of the books:



Interactive fiction -- the best-known form of which is the text game or text
adventure -- has not received as much critical attention as have such other forms of electronic
literature as hypertext fiction and the conversational programs known as chatterbots. Twisty Little
Passages (the title refers to a maze in Adventure, the first interactive fiction) is the first
book-length consideration of this form, examining it from gaming and literary perspectives. Nick
Montfort, an interactive fiction author himself, offers both aficionados and first-time users a way
to approach interactive fiction that will lead to a more pleasurable and meaningful experience of
it.Twisty Little Passages looks at interactive fiction beginning with its most important literary
ancestor, the riddle. Montfort then discusses Adventure and its precursors (including the I Ching
and Dungeons and Dragons), and follows this with an examination of mainframe text games developed in
response, focusing on the most influential work of that era, Zork. He then considers the
introduction of commercial interactive fiction for home computers, particularly that produced by
Infocom. Commercial works inspired an independent reaction, and Montfort describes the emergence of
independent creators and the development of an online interactive fiction community in the 1990s.
Finally, he considers the influence of interactive fiction on other literary and gaming forms. With
Twisty Little Passages, Nick Montfort places interactive fiction in its computational and literary
contexts, opening up this still-developing form to new consideration.
