'Enron' playwright Lucy Prebble says games are as well crafted as works for film, TV or the stage.
The first thing I remember is Zork. The year I was born, four guys who had invented a programming language at MIT released an interactive text “computer game” that went by the futuristic, silly but imposing name, Zork. It’s difficult to remember computers as they were then without our current sense of technological sophistication (or should that be naivety?). My father worked in IT, so there were computers in my house from an early age. I remember vividly my older siblings being taught to “code”; to enter strings of commands to form a short “program” that meant the computer did something like change its screen colour or show a moving triangle.
