Hunt the Wumpus on the AskHistorians Podcast   Leave a comment

I was a guest on a podcast! You can hear me talk for an hour about Caves and Hunt the Wumpus from my Before Adventure series.

Unfortunately my attempt to give plugs at the end got mangled, so let me quickly mention:

Aaron Reed published his article on Wumpus a week before recording, and it had some new research I got to use, as part of his excellent 50 Years of Text Games series.

I also referred some to Alex Smith’s book They Create Worlds.

And while dated, I can still recommend Steven Levy’s Hackers as a good glimpse of the era.
