Oh, wow, i should have posted about this here a little bit ago. I got an old book about making text-adventures in BASIC (which made me very happy) and decided to re-write the idea into C. So I did.

Totally a remake since I pretty much lifted 75% of this game directly from Tim Hartnell's book with a few things of my own. It's a hoot. The only thing I've got left to do at this point is the (local) high score table but that won't effect the game.

It's an IF, yes, but it's an IF lite. You don't have to be a hard core fan of Interactive Fiction to enjoy this one. And it's short. 10 minutes and you're done. 15 minutes tops.

Gonna redirect you to my forum. Hit this link and download the executable in the attachments, download the code if you want it too:

EDIT - Ver 1.0 executable and source code now available on Cymon's Games.


Mmm, sexxty. I recommend playing it in full screen.

(Additionally, a little while ago I took the choose-your-own interactive adventure from the book and made an interactive YouTube adventure. It was experimental and partly successful, but you can check it out if you want:

Dude thanks, this brings back memories. Tim Hartnell taught me to program. I still have this book and a few of his others somewhere in a box in the basement. I wonder what ever became of the man.

Oh, I would love to get my hands on more of those old books. I love em. I have a modest collection, but I want more. They are such a source of inspiration to me.

Update above, the game is now ver 1.0 with high score table and safer input handling.

Sad to see the loss of a true MASTER GAMESMAN. ;_;
