This is an old school, dialup BBS game that I wrote in the late 80’s, early 90’s. I dug this off of a really scratched up old backup CDrom I found.

It uses regular ASCII characters and ANSII color codes, and plays like the really old Zelda games. It had a full game editor with a simple scripting language, map editors, etc. It was written in MS QuickBasic 4.5.. But I recompiled it in QB64 as a native 64bit Linux application.

I had this online a couple of years ago, where you could connect via a javascript telnet terminal and play it. I should dig this out of mothballs again. 🙂 At some point, I would just like to completely rewrite this in NodeJS and eliminate the need for telnet and all the weird BBS stuff. Now that I have actual programming skills, I could probably do it in a couple of days when I have some time on my hands.
