Get Lamp released on March 2010

Get Lamp, the new documentary from Jason Scott, is finally available for preorder!

Get Lamp is a documentary about text adventures, in the words of the legendary people who made them. It has been four years in the making and should be released next March. Jason Scott's previous work, The BBS Documentary, has garnered critical acclaim.

I hopefully expect some people on this forum to be interested enough in "interactive fictions" to give this documentary a try. Torbjorn? :b

I don't know... $49 is a bit expensive, so at the very least I'll wait until I've seen some reviews of it.

By the way, for those who think adventure games began with LucasArts, I see Brian Moriarty is listed among the people interviewed. Oh yes, he was writing strange games long before Loom. (I haven't played his pre-Infocom games though.)
