CMDC Student Research Gallery

After seeing the flier for the MLA electronic literature exhibit, I went to the website to check out work  from previous shows.  They have a large collection that covers a variety of electronic literature genres.  I chose an interactive fiction piece called One.  The basic idea of the game is that your neighbor is playing loud music late at night…

Taco Fiction

I played this year’s IF comp winner called Taco Fiction.  The title of the IF is what drew me to it.  I figured it would take place in a Taco Bell or be about food somehow.  Instead, the game starts with you sitting in your car with a gun.  You are preparing to rob a store of some type so…

Poetry Poker Game

I’ve been playing the game Poetry Stud  which I found in one of the volumes of electronic literature on the blog.  This game is an interesting take on a poker game.  Instead of playing with a regular deck of cards, there are words on the cards.  It is run just like a poker game with each player betting, raising, or…

Hunt the Wumpus

After our discussions in class I checked out some of the games we’ve mentioned.  And I have become addicted to Hunt the Wumpus. It was originally created as a text based game but I found a recent video game remake that I love.  The website compares it to a game of hide and seek.  However, a lot more strategy is…

Letterscaping

I started exploring the electronic lit collections to get a better feel of what electronic literature actually is.  I found a lot of different choices but was hoping to find something more cohesive than what we had looked at in class so far.  However, I was drawn to Letterscapes by Peter Cho.  This totally blew my mind as it was…
