A long time ago, when the BBS made up the internet, using a 1200 bps modem, I dialed into a bulletin board using the C64. The place, California, and I chose the name Dark Star. The world has changed since then, at least two times over, but I’ve kept the name.
As for IF, I’ve written two games over the years. You can find them on the IFDB. And hopefully, you’ll enjoy the reviews I write.
