There's nothing quite like spending a bit of dough on your favourite hobby (yes, that would be text adventures). Especially not when commercial releases are few and far between. Industry legend Bob Bates (the man behind a couple of my childhood favourites, Infocom's Sherlock - The Riddle of the Crown Jewels and Arthur: The Quest For Excalibur, as well as Legend's Spellcasting series and more) has created a new, full-sized game with a very interesting premise. Thaumistry: In Charm's Way sees you dealing with magic, failed start-ups and people called Bodgers. Who may or may not risk mass persecution - sounds serious but I have a hunch that it's going to be a lot of fun, anyway.
The game is currently up on Kickstarter and is nearing its goal. But various stretch goals are promised, including Android and iOS ports as well as a nifty Chris Hülsbeck soundtrack, and as I love his music and Android ports, here's hoping that the funding will go far. Check out the project including the intro video - it's not every day you get the chance to see Steve Meretzky, Al Lowe and Tim Schafer in one spot.

I still have a truckload of updates to handle, so the next update should happen fairly soon.

Plot

Dr. Duncan came down with food poisoning just two days ago, so you've been employed to enter a simulation to check out the potential effects of the proposed Plan for Renewed Restaurant Cleanliness. As the game starts, the simulated area of Rockvil shudders into existence around you.

Notes

This was an entry in Speed-IF 13. It is apparently influenced or based on Steven Meretzky's A Mind Forever Voyaging, published by Infocom in 1985.
