6. Playing with Text Adventures > Hacks 63–67: Introduction

Hacks 63–67: Introduction

You kids today are so spoiled! Back in the day, video games didn’t have your so-called fancy graphics. In fact, many of them didn’t have graphics at all! In this chapter, you’ll learn all about text adventures, which also go by the high-falutin’ name Interactive Fiction (IF). Some of them are the precursors to what are known today as point-and-click adventures, while some use the interactive storytelling concept to present narratives with branching paths, much like a Choose Your Own Adventure book.

Whether you want to play brand new IF or explore the classic original games, there are hacks here for you. You can even find out about massively multiplayer online text adventures that evolve and grow along with players. And if you think you’d like to try your hand at creating IF, you can learn how to do that here as well.
