Während der Arbeit an seiner 2011er Textadventure-Doku Get Lamp hatte Jason Scott eng mit Steven Meretzky, Entwickler des legendären Infocom-Textadventures zu Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Von dem griff er sich damals Ordner voller Skribbles zu alten Werbe-Anzeigen, Gamedesign-Notizen, interne Infocom-Memos und whatnot ab und die hat er nun gescannt und beim Internet Archive online gestellt. Grandioses Archiv für Retrotech-Archäologen.

Infocom_Cabinet_Hitchhikers_Guide_0000A collection of digitized scans from a large cache of documents related to the game publisher Infocom, Inc. of Cambridge, MA. Assembled by Steven Meretzky of Infocom. In 2006, documentary filmmaker Jason Scott began production on GET LAMP, a video documentary about the realm of text adventures and interactive fiction. Shooting and research time was roughly 4 years, during which Jason interacted with a large variety of members of the various communities and companies that made up the story of text adventures. Among these was Steve Meretzky, developer at Infocom, Inc, arguably the largest and most influential of the 1980s adventure game companies.

During his time at Infocom, Steve Meretzky meticulously gathered thousands of pages of notes, journals, maps, memos, forms and other printable materials related to all aspects of Infocom, and kept them in his basement for decades. During the GET LAMP production, Jason Scott scanned in roughly 9,000 pages of these documents across a number of months, borrowing the materials from Steve and scanning them as quickly as possible, at around 600dpi. From these scans, a portion was used in the GET LAMP movie to illustrate various scenes and descriptions by interviewees.

Hier die gescannten Hitchhiker-Unterlagen, da ein paar von Meretzkys Infocom-Fotos, Anzeigen, Mixed Bag, Jason Scotts Blogpostings zum Infocom-Cabinet. Beautiful Stuff.
