This page is about the interactive fiction wanna-be author and fan Simuloid.
Who is Simuloid
My real name is Steve Rowe, and I'm a research engineer living near Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States.
My non-family passions are role-playing games, programming, and artificial intelligence. I have been playing interactive fiction games since Scott Adams hooked me on my Apple ][+ back in 1980. I played all the Infocom games I could afford. I have been following the IF competition for years, my favorite game of the last 10 years is the one-room adventure Suveh Nux, and I am a total fan-boy of Emily Short.
Why did I Sign Up?
Because this is where all the cool kids hang out? OK, not so much. It's because I love IF and I saw an opportunity to contribute in a couple of small but measurable ways:
- I was originally directed here by Alex Warren's online authoring page, when I realized that my wiki foundation login didn't automatically sign me in.
- Now that I'm here, I can actually add to and correct articles. I know a thing or two about wikiscript.
- If people are still signing up on the wiki, it tells the pillars of the IF community that there is still life in the old girl.
- Finally, it might actually prompt me to get off my butt and finish any of the half-dozen games I have started and abandoned.
The Games I have Published
The murmur of the slight breeze sighing through the empty meadow is the only competition to the crickets' chirping.
