Hi, my name is Thomas La Homme. I'm a veteran of two Industrial bands. I'm also a poet.  I grew up with the old Choose Your Own Adenture and Endless Quest books in the 80's and have always been fascinated with the old text-based computer games like Zork.

My background has been in writing fiction, so my point of attack when writing story-games is always with an emphasis on the story. I feel that interactive fiction is a valed art form that can be viewed as a subgenre of experimental fiction. Since mainstream writers are likely to take this format and do something skull-crushingly boring, I see this as an opportunity to expand the form of "genre fiction". Whether of not what I write is any good is up for debate. Writing is always a learning process, so hopefully I'm getting better as time goes by.

Let me know what you think. 

 

Storygames

The Dolls' Quest

Two sentient dolls who remember previous lives as a prince and princess in another universe, go on a perilous quest across the United States to learn more of their origins. My first storygame so any constructive criticism is welcome. Now with 30% fewer typos! Thanks to Mizal for editing advice. 


Time and the Twin Cities
unpublished

A young man's coming of age as he navigates an underground fairy city where time runs slower and his hometown as it evolves into a metropolis over the centuries.

So happy for you that you've gotten this situation settled. Hope you get back to being your old self soon!

That's not convenient for me because I don't have internet access on my home computer. I can write the text out and then save it on a portable drive, but then I have to go to the library to upload it. Very time-consuming.

I found it. It's in a drop-down. There's a menu at the top with the button you press to get to it.

I always thought Rorshach was like a superhero version of Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. He has a sense of decency, but he's so screwed up that he just sees the bad in people and seldomly ever the good.

Okay, thanks for the heads up.

I'll just copy and paste my stuff to spellcheck.net. Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions.

Okay, now the spellcheck's not working. I'm putting my rich text editor back on because things are just more complicated without it. I think the site's been reformatted and that's why my spellcheck's not working.

Okay, the spellcheck's working. Thanks, mizal. I appreciate all you do for me. The technical aspects of this site sometimes make me feel like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer: "You're world frightens and confuses me!"

Spellcheck on 1/16/2020 4:02:09 PM
Okay, I think I figured it out, mizal. Will this bring back spellcheck?

Spellcheck on 1/16/2020 3:51:35 PM

Okay, thanks, mizal. Um, where in my profile would I find that option? I seem to be at a loss.
