Yes, that’s right — your Valentines are finally* in! (Love has no season, why’s there gotta be a separate day for it, grumblegrumpexcuse.) Thanks for the response! We have three entries, and befitting the broad nature of modern-day IF, they are all in different forms: one in Twine, one in Inform, and one in text. They are below:
- TO: Daniel Stelzer; FROM: Hanon Ondricek!
- TO: Melvin Rangasamy; FROM: Andrew Schulz!
- TO: Graham Nelson; FROM: Rowan Lipkovits:
Valentines are hosted via Dropbox, except which is in sonnet form, and below:
Bravo to the scribes of Inform 7:
like Prometheus’ theft of fire,
such a gift could be sent down from heaven —
advent crowed by troubadour and crier.
Thinking thoughts out loud is all one’s needing
to create a universe uniquely
yours — and all your furtive fruitful seeding
blooms in others’ gamboling obliquely.
Now must I kowtow upon the floor. You
gave us all the tools for work and playing
freely and without a catch, therefore: to
Mister Nelson’s crew, here’s much hooraying!
For a gift, you see, that keeps on giving;
text adventures’ triage back to living.
Thanks everyone! We hope to see you again next Valentine’s Day, with even more author and developer love.
