@Sig: I hope he fixed some of the bugs before he uploaded it there... But nice idea
Totally unrelated and probably old news: http://www.systemshock.org/index.php?topic=211.0
Still suprised me to find it!
He actually has been spending a good bit of time on just that, as well as making an interface that will work for the Kindle. The hope is that the new platform will open up the genre to a wider audience.
Nice to hear. Though I am not into ebooks and readers for leisure and the books I would need as ebook won't be released as such. Damn academic writers, charge 100-150€ for their PhD thesis paper as a hardcopy of a book... Almost everything I like to read atm costs 50€ (250 pages...) up to 200€ (OOP or more than 500pages). And these are the books that cry for a "search" function and easy copy&pasting for citations in my writings.
But yes, his blog is very inspiring, but very long posts. I am trying to read up, but don't find much time. I will spread the word about IF on kindle. Have been wondering why there is no interpreter for the mobile platforms (or maybe there is and I haven'T noticed?)

There is a kindle app for android...
I think I stumbled over that on amazon once. Maybe this will work for Kings too. ... Android seems to be the new Windows, everybody expects I am talking about Android when I talk about mobile platforms in general. :)
I thought like something direct, like Scummvm, which runs on Symbians, Androids, iOSs and maybe even winphones and blackberries.
^ That should have been on "Video games"...

I use one called HunkyPunk for Android which is decent. The biggest problem is that the newer format that is required for larger, more fully-featured games (glulx) is pretty much limited to desktop clients and web-based interpreters right now. That's changing, but slowly; there are relatively few people involved in the development of such things.
I am thinking that a dedicated eInk reader of some kind is going to make it to my Christmas list. They've really come down in price, and I know I would use it; I've been reading ebooks since my Palm M100 in 2001.
Here's kind of a fun, silly little video game:
Basically, you attempt to scare people out of the house as quickly as possible without getting them killed.
It takes a while, but you can frighten everyone out of the house.
I haven't tried killing anyone, though.
Cute game, fleeb; I rather enjoyed sending the little weebles running through the house with they're heads in their hands....
on the less cute but still fun side is the Last Stand zombie-killing game....

'Cept you, fleeb....you're safe.
Wow...apparently, I enjoyed it enough to post it twice....
