Pleased to meet you. My name is Simon Burford, and I am the author and creator of the Rewind universe. You're probably wondering what a SciFi writer could possibly know about converting his books into works of interactive fiction, aren't you? Perhaps a little background is in order.
Back in the 80s, I started out my journey in programming by producing a series of text adventures - first for the TI99/4a home computer, and then for PC - back in the days when Scott Adams and Infocom were rulers of the text based universe and desalinating salt from seawater
during a storm was obviously the only way to pursuade a volcano based bear not to eat you. Logic was often out of town in those days.
I was working on my first solid state command module (an adventure writing system called Adventure Master) for the TI when Texas Instruments decided that home computers weren't for them any more and threw
in the towel. From there, I moved into database software development and systems design before becoming a SciFi and travel writer - but a large part of my heart has always been back there where I left it, frozen in time on a Savage Island, and I believe that now
may be the time to retrieve it. Those of you who were around at the time might even have a clue what some of that means.
The concept work has been done in my spare time, but I'd really like to now dedicate as much time as possible to the Rewind universe in order that it sees the light of day before the dystopian future depicted within actually comes to pass and the whole thing becomes a documentary. I also intend to
create a complete soundtrack and all new graphics and illustrations for the software version, as well as developing several mini games within the adventure just to keep people on their toes!
