Apollo 18 + 20 Has Been Released!

March 27, 2012 § 2 Comments

The very first interactive fiction tribute album, curated by Kevin Jackson-Mead, and hosted by the People’s Republic of Interactive Fiction has finally been released.  

Check it out here! Almost all of the Chicago Interactive Fiction Group is represented within, with a staggering five games by our own Andrew Schultz.  

In other Chicago-IF news, Peter Nepstad and Ed Blair raised $300 for 826CHI’s Clandestine Quest, and came in third place out of 37 teams.  Read more about that here!

We’re still having meetings at Filter at 8 pm, generally on the second Thursday of every month.  We’ll do our best to keep this page more current.

    I’d’ve taken fewer if I’d known more people would show up late. I was just sort of trying to help make up the numbers, really. I’m pretty sure I took too many, as I still have ideas for stuff I want/need to put in games, but I learned a ton.

    I was really glad to see you guys throw in some games. I should have bugged you about them earlier. I had a lot of fun with them all, and I will have a lot of fun replaying the ones I already tested.

  • Visual novels are interactive fiction featuring mostly static graphics, usually with anime -style art. As the name might suggest, they resemble mixed-media novels or tableau vivant stage plays. Visual novels are especially prevalent in Japan , where they make up nearly 70% of PC games released.
