''Note:'' As of 6/29/05, upon taking over as the list's maintainer, I noticed that much of the info may be out of date. I will contact everyone on the list, to request updated info (and, whether or not you still wish to collaborate). Please keep your info updated, either by editing this page, or by sending email to me so I can do it. Updated info should be moved back to the top, so that active collaborators are easier to identify. As information becomes stale, it should be moved down into the Dormant Collaborators section -- and eventually removed.
+
''Note:'' 15 Feb 2007 -- Please remember that when editing a profile on this page, it should be moved to the top of the Current Collaborator's section (and removed from wherever it was  before). Edit the "Updated" date (if this is the first update to the profile, unbold the "Added" date and make the "Updated" date bold). Use one blank line between the section header and the first profile, and two two blank lines after each profile (otherwise the WIKI displays one profile directly after another, with no whitespace). Also, let's consider 18 months "active" and any profile not updated in that time "dormant". An update can be just a move to the top with a new updated date (a kind of "hey, nothing has changed, but I'm still here" thing). Let's try 3 years for the deletion of dormant collaborators. Thanks!

*''Misc:'' I'm the author of 3 IF games to date - Identity (15th place IF Comp 2004), Moonglow and Catseye. I developed a miniaturized INFORM library (called mInform) and in late 2004 ran the Commodore 32 contest which challenged authors to create the best game possible using only 32K of code space. I'm looking for someone to help write a game for the 2006 IF competition. More specifically, I've got a game in mind (a western "ghost town" theme) and all I have so far is an introduction, a half-dozen puzzles and a map sketched on the back of an envelope. I'd prefer to see this game come to fruition but I'm fine with taking things in a different direction. My strength is in coding, not in writing and I could really use a hand with the prose and as well as crafting a believable game world (including fleshing out NPCs). I would prefer to work with someone that has Inform coding experience though a partner having good idea/writing skills is more important.

IF Collaborators List

Nicholas Daley of New Zealand is the list's founder and original maintainer. The list was then taken over by Jay Goemmer for several years, and is now maintained by Mike Snyder on the IF-Wiki.

This is a list of people who are willing to work with others to create Interactive Fiction. The most recently added or updated entries are listed in order by date.


Here, you can:

  • Contact someone from the list, to collaborate on an IF project.
  • Add, update, or remove your name and info by emailing Mike Snyder.
  • Add, update, or remove your name and info by editing this page.


Note: 15 Feb 2007 -- Please remember that when editing a profile on this page, it should be moved to the top of the Current Collaborator's section (and removed from wherever it was before). Edit the "Updated" date (if this is the first update to the profile, unbold the "Added" date and make the "Updated" date bold). Use one blank line between the section header and the first profile, and two two blank lines after each profile (otherwise the WIKI displays one profile directly after another, with no whitespace). Also, let's consider 18 months "active" and any profile not updated in that time "dormant". An update can be just a move to the top with a new updated date (a kind of "hey, nothing has changed, but I'm still here" thing). Let's try 3 years for the deletion of dormant collaborators. Thanks!

  • Can work on: Authoring, Betatesting
  • Ideas: Some
  • Programming Systems Preferred: I have only done a little game programming and that was in Inform.
  • Spoken Language: English. I can understand some French and German though as I've studied these languages.
  • Misc: I have a lot of writing experience- some local and national publication-, proofreading experience, and betatesting experience. I enjoy games where you explore a building or area solving puzzles as you go. Some of my favorite games are Adventure, Building, and Son Of A...

  • Programming Systems Preferred: I now have a game engine capable of delivering Myst-like adventures over the Internet, using HTML, Javascript and Java. See the 3-scene, no-end prototype at http://www.nascr.net/~fff/bridge/page11.htm
  • Home Page URL: http://www.amazonsystems.co.uk/
  • Misc: I am a fan and author of text adventures from 'way back. I'm buzzing with ideas, looking to develop this Myst-ish "multimedia" approach, but I've run out of steam on the adventure - it's so much work for one - and I need to exchange help and inspiration from artists, musicians and authors with time to spare. I started the work in 2001, but it has lain fallow since 2003 from lack of someone to bounce it off.

  • Misc: It's been a while since I worked in anything other than Quill/Paw, but I can get back into it. Need authoring help in a game based on sci-fi author Philip Jose Farmer's "World of the Tiers" series.

  • Misc: I'm the author of 3 IF games to date - Identity (15th place IF Comp 2004), Moonglow and Catseye. I developed a miniaturized INFORM library (called mInform) and in late 2004 ran the Commodore 32 contest which challenged authors to create the best game possible using only 32K of code space. I'm looking for someone to help write a game for the 2006 IF competition. More specifically, I've got a game in mind (a western "ghost town" theme) and all I have so far is an introduction, a half-dozen puzzles and a map sketched on the back of an envelope. I'd prefer to see this game come to fruition but I'm fine with taking things in a different direction. My strength is in coding, not in writing and I could really use a hand with the prose and as well as crafting a believable game world (including fleshing out NPCs). I would prefer to work with someone that has Inform coding experience though a partner having good idea/writing skills is more important.

  • Misc: I wouldn't mind help completing Auden's Eden (runner-up, IntroComp 2004), or I have a couple of other ideas floating about, or I'm willing to work on your idea if it's good. I'd like to split both authoring and programming. I wouldn't enjoy just being the code-monkey for somebody else's text, but I'm perfectly willing to be the prose-monkey for somebody else's idea/design. I like strong plots or interesting places and tend to shy away from puzzle-fests. My favourite games are Galatea, Photopia and Spider and Web - like everybody else.
