Searching for Gregory Yob (Jerz’s Literacy Weblog)
Gregory Yob wrote “Hunt the Wumpus,” a 1972 computer game that featured cave-exploration and combat.
Of course, the game was all text, which makes it hard for most of my students to believe that anyone would possibly have enjoyed playing it. 1972 was also the year Atari released Pong.
Other than a few articles Yob wrote in the mid 80s, I haven’t been able to find out anything more about him. Anybody know something I don’t?
