  1. Curses

    Curses is an interactive fiction computer game created by Graham Nelson in 1993. It was originally developed on an Acorn Archimedes using Acorn C/C++, before Nelson moved to his Inform programming language, which was simultaneously released. It was the first non-test game developed in the language. It is distributed without charge as a Z-Code executable. Writing for the New York Times, Edward Rothstein described the game as "acclaimed." The Inform source code is not publicly available. Appearing in the beginning of the non-commercial era of interactive fiction, it is considered one of the milestones of the genre. The player takes the part of an English aristocrat called Meldrew. In the course of searching the attic for an old tourist map of Paris, Meldrew steps into a surreal adventure to uncover a centuries-old curse that has been placed on the family. The goal of the game is to find the missing map, and thus annul the curse.

  3. Mehmet Murat ildan:

  4. Christopher Faraone:

    Most of the curses are what we call binding spells: they aim at binding or inhibiting the performance of a rival. A lot of them have to do with legal cases. They say things like, Bind the tongue and the thoughts of so-and-so, who is about to testify against me on Monday, we have some that are aimed at rival musicians or actors, and a couple that seem to be connected with athletics. We have some that run something like this, Bind Helen, so that she is unsuccessful when she flirts or makes love with Demetrius. But the great majority of them seem to be connected with lawsuits.

  5. Edward Morgan Forster:

    I believe we shall come to care about people less and less. The more people one knows the easier it becomes to replace them. It's one of the curses of London.
