Ryan Veeder's Blog


My name's Ryan Veeder and I write text adventures, that is, "parser-based interactive fiction," in Inform 7.

My game Taco Fiction took first place in IFComp 2011, and is sometimes cited as inspiring a "school of Ryan Veeder" with tenets that I don't claim to fully understand. Several of my other games have scored highly in competitions or won XYZZY Awards.

In 2016 I organized the First Quadrennial Ryan Veeder Exposition for Good Interactive Fiction.

With Jenni Polodna I produce a Let's Play/author commentary text adventure podcast called Clash of the Type-Ins.
