I'm not sure what to make of the Historical Williamsburg Living Narrative project on KickStarter. It's Interactive Fiction, also known as a text adventure. (Insert fond memories of Infocom here.) It's set in Colonial Williamsburg, during colonial times, of course.
So, who the hell wants a text adventure set in Colonial Williamsburg? Well, me, for one. I live near Williamsburg and I loved text adventures. Apparently there are also 53 other people for whom the thought scratches a particular itch.
The goal is a modest one, only $1,500. And he's 90% of the way there. And he still has 18 days to get that last chuck pledged. But I'd hate to see this not happen. So, head over there and pledge five goddamn dollars, if only to see such an oddball idea come to fruition.
(Truth be told, if it gets to the deadline and he's still a bit short, I'll increase my pledge to get him over the hump. I mean, c'mon, it's a Colonial Williamsburg text adventure!)
Personally, I love KickStarter and have backed several projects.
