Ben Burry has hooked up a Jabber bot to several of the old Infocom Adventures, so you can play them over Instant Messaging Clients like Google Talk, iChat or Psi. Among the games is one of my all time favorites: „The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”:
To play, just connect to PrakBot@jabber.org in in your favourite Jabber-Client (XMPP). Commands are:
!stopgame - stops a game
!status - prints out your progress
Valid games are „hitchhikers_guide”, „phobos”, „wishbringer”, „zork”, „zork2” and „zork3.
