Let's make a text adventure!

Post by sonic91 » Thu Aug 09, 2007 4:02 pm

I'm bored. I enjoy making text adventures on my speccy and giving up less than halfway through. So maybe the retro gamer community can help me with this one (for the forum only, not to be actually made!) so if I start you off, let's see how far we can get with making a text adventure together, while feeling all nostalgic at the same time! Here we go...

You are standing at an entrance to a town, there are exits to the north and west. You see a torch.

Tell me what to do>
Fight the good fight of faith,
Lay hold on Eternal life.

Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.
