As previously agreed, the theme for this month is Text Adventure. I'm working on an "escape the spooky mansion" styled game called Night at Drundergond Manner, and it should be finished soon. :) Has anyone else decided on a theme?

My text adventure is going to be a simple RPG. You can walk around to visit towns and fight random monsters. Very basic.

The name is going to be 'Hikari's Quest' (Hikari is a Japanese name, it means light). I hope I can finish it soon.

The two most evil forces in the universe are spambots and Nazis. Thus, my text adventure's antagonists are Nazi spambots, who are attempting to invade the GMG.

I've been a Moderator for the Group Projects forum a good while now, but I've only been a Challenge of the Month mod a few hours since Ghost only proposed the idea of the forum earlier today, hehe.

As for those game ideas: LOL! Awesome! ;D

Today I'm going to put much effort into the space game to finish it for beta testing, than I'll release it to test and start working on the text adventure.
 
I believe I'll make up the text game as I go, so it's probably going to be corny.

I'm hoping to post my game later today, it's pretty much finished. I discovered another hidden command whilst working on it too: "END" is a considerably more convenient equivalent to "DOMENU QUIT". :)

Code: [Select]
HiddenCommandsFound = HiddenCommandsFound + 1
BooYeah = Indeed

END is "Real Basic" code for quit or end program so it makes sense for it to work.

After a busy week I finally had some time to work on the game again. I made the basic walking around engine.
Next thing to do is the fighting engine. That's going to be hard with typing commands only. A attack named "Kick" is easy to use but imaging your character casting "Evil fire from the underworld". :/
I might have to change my mind about the battle engine. (ex. 1 is kick and 2 is evil fire from the underworld)

Just had an idea for a battle engine for text only games:

To play just type in a spell name, it can only have 4 words.

for example:
Supreme Strike of Awesomeness

The game analyses how awesome each of the words are.

Supreme - 3
Strike - 2
Of - 1
Awesomeness - 4

TOTAL: 10

The game then chooses a number between 1 and your spell rating and deals that much damage to the opponent.

You cannot use a spell more than once during a fight.

Awesome eh?

Planning a prototype sometime soonish.
