So for my group project which was due this week, my group decided to put together an IF. I was assigned code duty, being the only one with programming experience.
After some exploration of the options, I finally settled down on TADS3 to be nicely similar to the programming languages I (sorta) knew and it looked to be good.
Well… it was a little bit harder then expected. I couldn’t figure out how to do interactive actors (NPCs) by the deadline, though I think if I play around with it a little bit more, I might have a chance to figure it out. I couldn’t set the “You are Dead” condition, and I couldn’t figure out how to set the “You Win” condition either.
However, it was a lot of fun. A very very rudimentary IF game, with scripting by myself and writing by myself and others in my group is up on my website. Despite being simple and incomplete, I have to say, I’m rather proud of it. Especially for two weeks of work.
Check it out and tell me what you think.
