over the copyright status of some of the games on our original
Interactive Fiction CD-ROM produced solely for the Sinclair QL market,
we have withdrawn this from the market. We are now compiling a new
collection of Interactive Fiction on CD-ROM which will be made
available to both users of the Sinclair QL and users of Windows based
All items will be provided
with the express permission of the copyright holders and distributed as
charityware (otherwise known as careware). This means that we guarantee
to pay at least two-thirds of the sale price to chosen children's
charities. The remainder will cover advertising and production fees.
At present, it is
envisaged that the adventures will all be in either the popular ZCode
format (which can be used with the assistance of a suitable ZCode
interpreter on many different machines), or in Glulxe format. Windows
and Sinclair QL interpreters will be included on the CD-ROM.
There are quite a few
authors who have already agreed to add their works to this CD-ROM,
although we are also attempting to persuade some other authors to
contribute. The authors who have kindly agreed to include their works,
Prof. Peter D. Killworth (of Doom fame)
If you are willing to
allow your adventure to be included on this CD, please contact us.
