Going Back to the Roots of Digital Gaming to Find an Unexpected Treasure for Teaching and Learning
Back around 1985 I was introduced to the Apple IIE while attending Mercy College. I had developed a good relationship with the teachers and administrators at the little branch campus I attended and worked at in Peekskill, NY. They actually allowed me to take one of the computers home one weekend. I spent much of that weekend playing a text adventure game, which I recently learned is also referred to as “interactive fiction”. I can still see the simple line drawings on little green screen.
