My fellow Australians will know that there are only six actual people on this continent of ours, and we’ve been working hard all this time to look like more.
Of those six people, five are into IF (and the other guy is a jerk).
The Brimbank Writers and Readers Festival is running an Interactive Fiction Panel (they’re still looking for a parser writer, FYI - PM me if that sounds like you) and I intend to be there, along with my fellow Tin Man Games writer Alyce (and probably various other Tin Minions).
So… shall we all converge on Brimbank at the beginning of September?? There’s bound to be a food venue of some kind (I shall consult my Melbourne associates if no one here speaks up) we can invade en masse for an afternoon on Saturday or Sunday.
Edited to add: The panel is set for 2-3:30pm Saturday 10 September.
@ Sydenham Library.
I will absolutely dress for the occasion (probably steampunk, possible pirate) and I’m generally difficult to miss. I’ll most likely look like this (any skirt I wear will be ankle-length), but with a top hat just to make sure I can’t be mistaken for someone else.
PS I’ll also be running an IF workshop focusing on ChoiceScript/Tin Man Games stuff in late September in Canberra, if that’s to anyone’s taste.
