Get Lamp: A Documentary about Old Text-Based Games

(YouTube Link)

I'm sure that a lot of you young whippersnappers don't remember text-based games. Back in my day, we didn't have any of your fancy computer animation or virtual controllers or flush toilets. We had text and keyboards and two-holers and used them to navigate poorly-reasoned puzzles and obstacles, in the snow, uphill, both ways.

So watch this trailer for Get Lamp, a documentary about those early days when games like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy were the epitome of cool. "Before there was the first person shooter, there was the second person thinker."
