In this case ASCII isn't used by someone with no artistic ability, it's being used by someone too lazy to do something better.
Plus, I've already made some ASCII games for other purposes, so I've got the experience. And I mean, what other opportunities am I going to have to make an ASCII game other than my own masochistic entertainment?
I'm hoping that the ASCII graphics don't turn out looking horrible. Please let me know if they do, okay? Hopefully the game will actually be fun to play too, as UltraJMan said. (JMan isn't for JumpMan, is it? Anyone else play JumpMan on the C64? That game was awesome!) I'm guessing it won't be the next WoW or anything, but hopefully it'll be fun for a few minutes. That's how most of my other games have turned out.
Oh, by the by, does anyone else agree with BaronCid's suggestion of a name change? I'm not married to the name Griselda or anything. It just case up when I looked up Zelda in a thesaurus.
P.S. Lawn mowed! I'm safe for another week. Now sprinklers, those are a different matter. Don't even get me started on sprinklers.
P.P.S. Thanks for the interest Melly. That's actually my wife's name. Well, really her name is Melinda, but I call her Melly sometimes.
