GET LAMP

Recommended Posts

Another routine evening at the computer keyboard. You have watched two videos about chainsaw fails and read an interesting theory that certain politicians and people in power are actually hybrids of reptiles and space aliens. After reading that you wonder if you should keep surfing the web or indulge in some liquid refreshment.
?GET DRUNK
You cannot see a drunk here.
?GET DRINK
You mix a strong gin and tonic. Halfway through your drink you are feeling better. It may be time for bed when the drink is finished.
?SCROLL DOWN
You scroll down the screen and see the usual drivel. Whoever said that television is a vast wasteland had obviously never looked at the internet. One site seems to be out of the ordinary.
?CLICK ON SITE
 “Get Lamp”  This seems to be some sort of video. Your gin and tonic beckons.
?START VIDEO
The video claims to be a documentary, but in reality it seems to be some kind of time machine that magically teleports you back more than 40 years to the early development of  text adventures. There are interviews with Scott Adams, Steve Meretzky and many others.
An hour and a half later you find yourself back in your chair. You feel a strange sense of nostalgic satisfaction. You have heard about time warps and wonder if you have just encountered one. Your gin and tonic is still there, but all the ice has melted.
?TELL FRIENDS ABOUT GET LAMP
You cannot see a lamp here.
?ATARIAGE WATCH VIDEO
Your friends at Atariage now know that they should watch the video “Get Lamp” which can be found at:

?MAKE FRESH DRINK
You now have a new ice cold gin and tonic.
?TURN OFF COMPUTER

The screen goes dark...
