Thaumistry

You write:
First crowd-funded text adventure ever.
Surely Hadean Lands predates it by several years. Its Kickstarter campaign succeded in 2011 and although the game was delayed significantly several times, it was released in 2014.

As you will notice, I discovered the error of my ways yesterday evening - I think even before you posted :)

But yes, Hadean Lands has been given its due credit. And Thaumistry has reached its goal!

Seeing that I posted on the 3rd and yesterday was the 7th, I find this unlikely ;)

What?! Are you implying that I can't read a simple date? Ok ok, so I can't

But all is well that ends well and I hope that the game turns out a success.
Speaking of Hadean Lands, did you play it?

Indeed, I did! In my view, a worthy successor to Zork Zero. At least gameplay-wise, the writing is not quite as sharp. The only thing is that I've grown quite tired of fantasy themes (which also makes me stay away from Thaumistry).
