[Comments] (3) : Another interesting use of April Fool's Day: Guncho, a multiuser hosting environment for interactive fiction, was announced on April first, complete with unrealistic details and jokey anagrammed name. Then on April second the unrealistic details were rescinded, like a wave rolling back from the beach, and what was left was something cool. So even people who demand trickery on AFD can enjoy it.

I was thinking Guncho would be a good platform for something Kevan was working on, I won't mention it because a quick scan doesn't show him announcing it, but he's probably thinking the same thing.

That is awesome. Do you know any of the details about how they did it? It almost seems like it could be a straightforward hack of an existing z-machine interpreter...

It probably is a hack of an existing interpreter. The wiki (http://wiki.guncho.com/) makes it seem like it has an NPC for every person playing the game.
