Thread: Office Quest: A forum adventure!

    Office Quest: A forum adventure!

    Okay, I'm going to try a little experimenting, just to see what happens. I'm attempting a forum based illustrated text adventure, just for a bit of fun. Time will tell if it fails utterly.

    Basically, what you need to is control the character on screen by replying with a command, the first reply to the image will be used to control the actions.

    For example, as you can see, the adventure starts in an office, by replying with 'Examine desk' the next image will be of the character examining what lies on the desk. Sounds boring... but hopefully it'll be a bit more exciting than that. Be as weird, silly or sensible as you like!

    I don't really have a plan as to where the character may end up (if anywhere).

    Here we go.

    Presenting...
    OFFICE QUEST!

    You are Lackey. Another faceless drone on the company payroll. It's Monday morning, you arrive at your desk, mentally preparing yourself for the day ahead. Right now is the longest possible time until the weekend.

    What shall you do today?

    USE COMPUTER


    You sit at your desk, and boot up your computer. It's going to be a long day of spreadsheets and databases! Well, it would be, but this computer is connected to the INTERNET! Luckily, you have mastered the art of looking busy while browsing porn.

    Examine desk!

    This seems like it's pretty cool, but I don't like sharing my text adventure control with others. Perhaps you should make this into an actual game? It would require a lot more artwork to be done, certainly.

    It's experimental at the moment, the best I can do is just take the first reply to the image. At least until I can work a better system. Think of this as the beta testing.

    I'd say go with whatever command you provides you with the best creative opportunities.

    HACK THE GIBSON!


    You watched Hackers last night and, inspired by Angelina Jolie's breasts, decide it's time to get into some serious cyber terrorism. Your first stop: the company mainframe! Now you're cooking with gas! Too long have you been the company stepping stone, the welcome mat to their metaphorical dirty boots! It's time you taught them a lesson!




    You don't know what the fuck you are doing.

    Sounds like a plan.

    There's no gun under your desk.

    Read papers on desk.

    (I don't know why I'm playing this like a real game and not looking for ridiculous opportunities.)
