About the Story1981: Robert Lafore, inventor of the term "interactive fiction", creates a computer game named "His Majesty’s Ship Impetuous". A tale of derring-do on the high seas, set in an Horatio Hornblower milieu.
2011: Jimmy Maher plays his way through the game as part of his ongoing Digital Antiquarian series. Coincidentally, he's also trying out ChoiceScript at the time. The result? A game originally intended for the TSR-80, with a rudimentary parser, is now implemented as a fun and straightforward browser game.
