Inform 7 is now (finally!) open source!
y'all ever describe a codebase as "picturesque"?
settling the octopi/octopodes debate
literal (figurative) acid test (from the inform 7 test suite)

@magical Siri what is the % operator
@magical thanks this is terrifying
@magical ... I'm trying to figure out why this is in an adventure game engine in the first place
@Canageek it's for an easter egg
@magical @Canageek ... Sigh
@magical what beautiful source code, thanks for finding these fragments
@magical It took me almost 3 sentences to realize I wasn't reading Inform 7 code (it's been a few years)
