That was a great interview. Hey, the “abandoned university, where the snow had mysteriously never melted”, game idea sounded like a game I played when I was little, on my apple //c. I looked it up, and its “Lurking Horror” (text based) released by Infocom in ‘87. I always loved this game, so I wanted to encourage you to someday continue with your vision of the abandoned university.
If there is ever anything I can help you with, just let me know.
