Poems that Go made the move to Wisconsin successfully; the new issue on literary games has just been published. Congrats to Ingrid and Megan on finishing up this intriguing Fall 2003 issue. It has some recent pieces that are already often discussed along with what are probably the first Poems that Go publications involving Java (used to interpet a work written in TADS, actually) and CGI scripts. More important than the technological diversity is the wide range of approaches to literature and game that are represented.
I wrote the introduction for this issue, so rather than ramble any further about the contents, I’ll just invite your comments on the works featured there, and mention that the issue offers:
- Arteroids by Jim Andrews
- The Intruder by Natalie Bookchin
- Nine by Jason Lewis
- Fields of Dream by Nick Montfort & Rachel Stevens
- Bad Machine by Dan Shiovitz
