My primary interests are playing, writing and writing about text adventures or, if you prefer, parser-based interactive fiction. In the past, I have ported many text adventures from various dialects of BASIC or translated foreign-language adventures to English, especially type-ins from books and computer magazines.
Nowadays, my adventure authoring language of choice is Inform 6, but I also like dabbling with Adventuron. All my early adventures on itch.io have been prototyped in Inform 6, then ported to Adventuron. The later ones are just written in Inform 6. A summary of these games is provided below.
Warning: These are all old-school, puzzle-based text adventures. If you just want to sit down and read a story, these aren't for you. But if you enjoy solving puzzles, you will enjoy these games. They're not necessarily easy, but they're lots of fun.
The Witch's Apprentice was written for Adventuron Halloween Jam 2019. You play the part of a young girl who is about to start her apprenticeship on Halloween and your first task is to find the ingredients for a magic potion. Medium-sized game with easy-medium puzzles.
Igor's Quest was written for Adventuron Treasure Hunt Jam 2020. You play the part of a somewhat dim-witted hunchback, who has to find body parts for Doctor Frankenstein's monster. The game is restricted to two-word input, two-word location and object descriptions and two-word responses. Medium-sized game with easy-medium puzzles that rely heavily on word play.
Charlie the Chimp was written for The Next Adventure Jam 2020. You play the part of a chimpanzee who is trying to return to his home in the chimpanzee enclosure. Small game with relatively easy puzzles.
Santa's Trainee Elf was written for the Adventuron Christmas Jam 2020. You play the part of an elf who has just started his traineeship in Santa's workshop and Santa has some chores for you to do. Medium-sized game with easy-hard puzzles.
Captain Cutter's Treasure was written for PunyJam #1. Captain Cutter and his crew of pirates have raided the pub where you work and kidnapped the owner's daughter. It's your job to rescue her, but you can only do that by returning the captain's treasure. Medium-sized game with moderately difficult puzzles.
Acid Rain was written for ParserComp 2021. After pulling over to the side of the road for a sleep, you find that it's raining heavily outside and the car has a flat battery. You must find a replacement battery in a mysterious mansion that hides a gruesome secret. Medium-sized game with mostly easy puzzles.
I have a huge backlog of unfinished games. If you'd like to be informed of new releases, follow me on itch.io.
