Welcome to the Interactive Fiction Wiki
Sunday, October 21, 2018


Hey, everyone. As part of the cultural and ideological shift in interactive fiction, I shall be changing the Games category pages to refer to Works instead of Games. It's become increasingly obvious that works of interactive fiction aren't just games, but also what might be called stories, art pieces, and toys -- and possibly other sorts of things yet to be created. In truth, IF has included such non-games for quite some time, but we've collectively called everything "games" regardless. Unfortunately, calling all IF "games" has the unfortunate side-effect in thinking that works that aren't games don't belong. So, I'm changing our terminology. Discussion on this topic can be found at http://www.intfiction.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16906 . -- David Welbourn 17:24, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

"IF is now being written by many types of people, for many reasons, as freeware or for sale, and distributed in a wide range of places. It is harder than ever to follow what is going on, and also there is a greater than ever variety to the works and players."
--Emily Short, "Brief Bibliography about IF History," April 2016.
