Hope you guys are as old as i think, because my Text basher is very old skool. its turn based and is quite fun, you are a dark lords messenger running erronds in a dungeon, but if you dont navigate to dungeon fast enough you will suffer, all the usual RPG stuff skills , stats, treasure, searching, random maps, fighting monsters

I am old enough to remember playing Adventure on a PDP-11 back in college in the early 80s.



Fun times back then, but I'm not sure, I'm ready to relive text-type games.

I was interested in checking it out  :(
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Thanks - just a bit odd that you took it down from your website just because one guy said he wasn't particularly interested in it.   :peace:

MH, sorry you took it that way, no bias was intended.  :(   Just because I stated I wasn't going to be interested, doesn't mean others wouldn't be.  I think its great you are making games you want/like.  I always liked programming, just never was able to come up with an idea/concept that I wanted to pursue.
 Keep it up.  O0

yes! I have removed the game now, thanks for your guidance

I agree, leave it up for some time....it takes us a while sometimes to get to it....

My personal favorite text game was Bureaucracy, scripted by Douglas Adams (yes, the Hitchhiker's Guide guy). It was very funny. But 1987...a long time ago.

I remember one from decades ago...I think it was called Zork...?  Had a lot of fun with it but would have no interest in it now.
