The Land of FAQ

Feature Article

Nick Montfort created the Frequently Asked Questions article licensed under the Creative Commons 2.0 license. There is another article by David Fisher that lists Past raif topics. Check these articles out if you have a question. It's probably already been asked or the topic already discussed.   Tropes are recurring conventions and patterns. Interactive fiction has its share of tropes, including plots like Family Home Mystery, game elements like mazes, and in-jokes like red herrings and xyzzy. An overused trope is sometimes called a cliché.

Previous features: Shadow Vault, SmoochieComp, Erins 2005

There is a Craft article that contains information on how to do things and a Theory article on a subjective definition of various interactive fiction concepts. There is a Starters article that can help new players and authors get going, and you might want to check out the Current events page for what's happening in the IF world. Check out the Examples of code category, where you can suggest code you'd like to see or donate your own code examples.
