Slouching Towards Bedlam - 10th Anniversary Edition

(drawing by J. Robinson Wheeler)

In 2003, I was lucky enough to work with Star C. Foster on "Slouching Towards Bedlam" for the 9th Annual Competition. Since then, I've received several requests for the source code - mostly in regards to translation attempts - and have been forced to admit that the original work was lost soon after the game's completion in a hard drive crash.

At the end of 2013, I released a reimplementation of Slouching in Inform 7, complete with source code.

  • The Inform 7 produced site (Release 2) can be found here.
  • The Release 1 site (pre-Inform 6L02) can be found here.
  • The zblorb file can be found here.
  • The HTML source text can be found here, and the complete text here.
  • The "Titled Menus" extension (necessary to compile the Inform 7 source) can be found here.

    The original 2003 release of the game can be found here.
