Jimmy Maher’s The King of Shreds and Patches is now available for Kindle. That makes it to the best of my knowledge the first piece of stand-alone parser IF to appear for sale on that platform. (There are choice-based stories by Choice Of Games, a piece or two by Jon Ingold, and Inheritance, which apparently offers a menu-driven approach to an IF-style world model, but I believe this is the first release that offers a standard command line.)
What’s more, Jimmy’s blog post on the topic seems to suggest that the underlying engine may be able to present other Glulx games on the Kindle in the future. This is a relief to me. I’m constantly being asked why there isn’t IF for sale on the Kindle. Now there is! Look! See!
I haven’t had a chance to play the Kindle version myself — I can read Kindle books on my iPad but not play the interactive Kindle games. But I have played the original, and can say that it’s a massive, meaty, plot-rich piece of work. (Review here.) Recommended.
