This is a project I made for my final year at university.
This project involved the creation of a website that supports the authoring and playing of ‘interactive fiction’, an early genre of text-based computer game.
What is it?
Interactive fiction is a cross between a computer game and a traditional novel, in that the game displays paragraphs of text to the player like reading a story, but the player has to guess what commands to type into the game in order to progress to the next part of the story.
How do you play it?
The game is played using a command-line interface and keyboard, much like an application such as the Windows command prompt. Text is typed in by the user, the game parses the text and forms commands from it, the game carries out the commands, and the resultant text is printed onscreen.
