Get Lamp, A Documentary By Jason Scott

Back in April we posted about Jason Scott’s upcoming documentary about Text Adventure games, “Get Lamp”. I had the opportunity to see the “one-hour mix” of the film, along with an almost-hour-long “special feature” all about Infocom at The Next HOPE back in July. It was well-made, informative, and entertaining with lots of funny and interesting bits.

A brief screening tour is set to kick off in September and you can purchase the DVD at the film website. The packaging for the DVDs is pretty cool too, with some rad box art and an individually numbered coin, as an homage to the great Infocom game packaging of yore. Check it out!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
