So, I am ninety-nine percent sure that I am the only one who plays Infocom text adventures in the universe besides less-advanced civilizations light years away who pieced it together out of our space junk.

I play parser games. Not necessarily infocom, though.

I tried text adventures, back in the day when point-and-click wasn't a thing yet.

I hated them so much.

I used to play MUDs. I even played one last year! Text based gaming can be fun, because it tends to be a lot easier to create stuff with descriptions rather than actual art.

Assuming you draw these pics, they're pretty good egghead.

I don't. They're drawn by The Weaver. Speaking of text adventure games. The Weaver is best known for Ruby Quest, a sort of mock adventure game he ran via chan. People would submit text commands and he'd draw out the actions. I highly suggest it to everypony.

He's also intermittently doing Dive Quest.

On a completely unrelated note, Dive Quest update when?

Are you deliberately being vague to lure people into read Ruby Quest? Because that's kind of sadistic.

Yes, actually, and if I remember correctly both authors have complimented the other for their work!

>>132728

I believe there's also a NanQuest? Not sure how that one's going. I don't keep up on all of his stuff, even though I follow him.

>>132731

I will not comment on the nature of my statements. Everypony needs to go read Ruby Quest.

I miss Knight Blades.

I miss the amazing artwork.

Hey, I do. I love the story-based IF. It's too bad I'll be missing the deadline for voting in this years IFcomp.
