Re: Making a basic text adventure.

Haven't updated this in a good couple of years almost and the fact that I also don't post here a lot doesn't help haha. Anyways, I've decided at the pace it is to load from tape and how slow it is and how it ages and how annoying it is to type on an MZ-80K keyboard, it's time to abandon ship. Now th...

Re: Ten Liner Cave

So basically, this is a text adventure that automatically generates itself each time? This seems very interesting. If I look at the description correctly there is a port of TLC to Zork Implementation Language (by Infocom) on Ultimate 64. So if we port the Zork Implementation Language to Machine Code...
