That's cool, but I'm mainly curious if my PP email would be visible to the general public and compromise my online persona/pseudonym with my real-world name. Sorry if my original question was phrased confusingly.
Was just curious about allowing donations in the future. I have a PP account that is to my "real" email address. If I want to keep my online pseudonym separate from my real identity, should I somehow set up a different PayPal account, or would people even be able to see the destination email when they donate?
Lynnea Glasser (XYZZY winning IF author) is planning to stream some BOYD games live on Twitch:
"Tomorrow" being 6/24. I suspect she won't have time to get to everything and will primarily focus on adventure/IF entries. Twitch will hold a stream in archive to re-watch for about two weeks after the fact, so make sure you check in soon if you miss the live broadcast.
The Inform 7 site has a list of different interpreters for glulx/blorb files. There are several different ones and people often switch depending on the game and their preferences.

The design owes to Portal, and I really dig the ambience. I have always wanted the game that lets you explore Escher-like environments with odd physics. Antichamber was close but not quite.

I like this sort of thing, so I appreciate your prototype a lot!
