NANY Entry: Galaterra

My entry this year is a brief, proof-of-concept game implemented in JavaScript. It demonstrates an implementation of loops, commands, etc. all processed via the browser. This entry was created using Twine (http://twinery.org):

Pretty cool... reminds me of the inform stuff. 

Bug: If you go to the torque-wrench and enter an incorrect answer, the game is blocked.

It looks like a Next-Gen version of the Zork-type text games. Theoretically this could be an engine that could convert lots of those old games into web versions.

I uploaded an update. Shouldn't block on torque-wrench use. Should give you a "Continue" hyperlink.

Cool!  Another form of this I'd been looking at: https://writer.inklestudios.com/

Yes, InkleWriter is pretty cool. I decided to fool around with Twine because the created games can either be hosted on a webpage or the HTML file can be emailed to someone or downloaded and played by anyone with a modern browser.
