Call my game "finished".

You can see it if you would like, but I think you already have.

Sorry I still haven't posted my game, but I assure you that it's now completely finished and I'll post it after I run a final test later. I haven't been able to get online much recently as we're changing internet provider.

btw, turns out our house insurance covers the computer so I'll have a new one in a week or two! :)

Finally: http://www.mediafire.com/?honhi5mzd33

I'll post the source this weekend after a few people have played it. Let me know if you find any spelling mistakes.

Enjoy!

EDIT:

It's just occurred to me that I never posted the updated Al's Text Adventure Template. I'll have to dig it up and post it soon.

EDIT AGAIN:

Oh wait, I did post the updated template. Ages ago. :-X

I must be dreaming (wake up me wake up) How could this have happened. Tireas' cry when he found his computer fallen over in his chair with it's screen shattered.

matter of opinion, but text adventures are still really popular. some people just like the puzzle-solving nature of TAs, and don't mind lack of graphics (especially when the storyline is well developed).

and believe me, there are some really well developed text adventures.

I certainly shall. The amount of work that went into creating Night at Drundergond Manner is unreal. I'd sooner have made Supa Pong again, with better AI too. Nope, I'll not be attempting a TA for a loooong time...

I like the game though.

You could do a real neat old-fashioned style text adventure with SilverCreator using the INPUT command where you actually have to type the commands in and stuff.

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)
You could set it up so that the command "Attack [monstername]" makes it attack with whatever weapon you have equip. You just have to remember to equip sword BEFORE you start a battle.

Ever played "Beyone Zork"? I still play that one in an emulator. :D
