If anybody here remembers Zork, then you are the true Geek. I wanted to have something to entertain my self while on the computer in class, without them checking my history and busting me. So, I created this Game Called Option B.
It's just a lot of files titled with different option. You have to have sleep, food, and certain items to survive the game.
I'll Show you how to make it.
Step 1: Let's get started.
Ok, So I figured that just naming folder with different options would be just fine for this game.
First open up your C: drive, or create the game on a flash drive. If you go with flash drives, you can create multiple games.
Make a new folder, and title it with whatever you want.
Step 2: Start adding moves to the game
After you have put in a folder for the game, start adding moves.
after each of these add a correspond action, for example, If you go forward, you have the option to climb a tree, giving the skill of surveillance.
Also, if you go back, you get a message that you cannot go back.
Step 3: Add items to locations.
In Option B you must have food, sleep, and other items to move forward in the game. In all the houses I put assorted items, such as Knives, flashlights, coats, extra clothes, disguises, ect. To move forward, for example, you might need a knife to open a lock to a shed containing essentials.
Add what you like to make a fun, or challenging game.
Step 4: Add people
If you can't figure out how to get into a lock, or get certain items, you may need help. Adding people can be like adding little hints to move the game along. In all of the houses, I have at least one person. Some are hostile, so you will need food and sleep to recover. Others, will give very helpful hints on moving forward.
add people to every building, and sometimes in the open. They will really make the game alive.
