“The fifteen people who think I’m famous think so because of Photopia. It’s not my best work—and I should certainly hope not, given how long ago I wrote it—but sometimes you have the right idea at the right time, and I happened to hit upon a new approach to interactive fiction right when people were ready for it. I have since developed this story for other media, and so to me this original version reads like a primitive ancestor of those adaptations… but if you landed at my site following some other link, and wondered “who is this guy?”, most people would probably point you to Photopia to answer your question.” ~Adam Cadre
