New documentary about text adventures


Get Lamp is a documentary aimed squarely at the heart of aging Infocom addicts everywhere (ie. your beloved author.) Jason Scott, who previously released BBS: The Documentary, has traveled across North America interviewing many of the pioneers that brought you Zork, Adventure and many other classics of the genre. The film isn’t done yet, but when complete it promises to be the best (and only, I think) visual history of text adventures ever created.Bring on the grue eating goodness!

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
