No seriously! You have to play it! I'll strip for you if I have to.

In any case, we all heard of children's CYOA stories, but you haven't seen anything like this before, this game....story? Is phenomenal, you can basically do anything you want but it's in story form, there's so much detail, an inventory system(kinda blows, honestly) and you do actions like attack, jump, climb, look around, etc. Whenever you want,

It would be cool if we could post our progress here. It won't spoil anything, the game is basically an open world interactive story.

Really! Please play it! I stopped playing at the beginning so I could post this topic, this game/story, would be a lot more fun if I could routinely discuss with others! Or at least read what kinda shenanigans they get into.

Note: I didn't know the proper forum, this seemed appropriate... and no, interactive fiction is not a game.

Another note! This version of the game WILL NOT save. It won't for me... 1 hour of progress... *Puts gun to head*

At least I didn't get far at all.

This is like one of those episodes of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon Cooper playing a narrative game.
(Sheldon playin a 80's game based in text, maybe its called "zork")


> Go north.

>> You can’t go that way.

> Go west. A troll blocks your passage.

"Okay, fasten your seat belts, kill troll."

>> With what?

> With sword.

>> You don’t have the sword.

"Good golly, it’s as if it’s actually happening to me."

I played Anchorhead a few years ago. It's really fantastic.

This is a bit different, this is made in INFORM7, so it's a bit more complex than your typical word processor game, for example, in those Fortran games, you cannot put items inside one another(unless it was intended that way), but you can put anything that will fit into say -- a bucket in this INFORM7 fiction.

*Looks at everyone and realizes no one is following*

Ugh! Just play the dang thing, if you want.

You just type in simple commands like "go west", "climb wall", "sit down".

Since you offered up stripping it would be rude not to accept it....


Sounds cool enough but it will have to wait. Have work now and some time in the hospital after that. Then glorious sleep before work again.
