Bookwyrm is an Interactive Fiction collection manager. When complete, it will allow browsing and download of large online game repositories, and a universal intepreter that can play any of the major virtual machine based game formats.

Bookwyrm uses game databases stored in RDF format, utilizing the vocabularies provided by the Interactive Fiction Metadata Initiative.

Development will follow three general stages:

  1. A Firefox extension, providing the basic features of cataloguing and launching games, but depending on external interpreters to run them.
  2. A standalone application, essentially a migration from Firefox to XULRunner when the latter reaches production level deployment.
  3. Completion of remaining features, including the framework for built-in interpreters.

Stage 1 is already well underway. An alpha version is available on the downloads page.
