i didnt like the song.

it sounded like Lemon Demon, who i like, but the lyrics sucked. they werent very smooth and sounded awkward (like the kinda awkward english teachers right on your paper)

i go on 4chan so i knw what all the references were and i was thar for that raid buttt i still didnt really like this all that much.

escape text adventure! escape text adventure!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

i love text adventures but...

I love text adventures! Zork, Planetfall, Infidel, the list goes on. And i love that someone else is also into text adventures. Tis a dying breed.

But you have some problems. First of, Flash and AS is a horrible language to make a text adventure in. Try Java, its simple, your games will look a lot like the original Infocom genre of epicness, and you can do a lot more, more easily.

Flash is great for scripted visual games. Keyword: visual. While you can make a game like this in flash, why would you? its like buying a brand new car just because you want to listen to a new radio. ive made quite a few text games in java and it is great and easy sailing. another route you might like is that there are many many text game constructors out on the internet. basically imagine the idiot proof cookie cutter learnability of Frontpage 2003 only with text games, and with some skill (just like in Frontpage) you can actually make something worth playing.

also one last thing, and i think this would also be easier in java, you need to make your verb list a lot longer and better. not because its easy, by no means im sure it would be very tedious for you to add more verbs, but because its the only way youll get people to play this game for this reason: why would i bother to play your text adventure escape game when games like Zork (I, II, III, IV, 0, etc) and Planetfall are epic, have the same gameplay only much much more complex text parsers, and are totally shareware now?
you need to expand vastly or give up on this dying market.

good site you might like btw is: tripleW DOT brasslantern DOT org


thoughtmaker responds:

thanks for the site! seems like a pretty good place to pick up some things for future games. actionscript is all i can program right now (not terribly well, i might add) but if java is so easy, maybe i'll use that as an excuse to begin to learn it hehe :) making this game was more time consuming than i wanted it to be, but i was hoping i'd learn from it and figure out a way to make it much quicker and simpler to program the same thing.

anyways thanks again!
