The Dark Tower Adventures (TDTA)
(c)2019 RCS-MPL Division
This game is based loosely on the Dark Tower series of books, written by Stephen King. If you are unfamiliar with the series, I would HIGHLY recommend them to you. They are very well written, and let's face it, it took him 22 years to get all seven books written... :)
Anyway, as you will notice in the game, there are many references to characters and situations within the series. But, even if you have not read them, I think you will still enjoy the game.
This game has been in both planning stages and early programming for a little over a year. I had been trying to complete this game as a standard door game, so that it wouldn't be program specific. However, I kept running into problems with every door kit that I tried. I understand the Pascal is a "dead" language, but c'mon...
I may end up trying to better my C programming skills, and see if I can port
it over to C in the future. This will depend on the response I get from these early tests. If you love the game, let me know. If you have suggestions for improving the game, let me know. If you hate the game, let someone else
know... ;) Just kidding. I'm open to any type of feedback on this game, or
any of my programs.
Keep in mind, this game is in *very* early alpha stages. There are still many things that will probably end up changing. I will, however, try to keep any needs for complete resets of the game to a minimum. The only time I should
have to reset the game, is if I change the player database. (or something drastic happens, and corrupts the database, which I don't foresee happening)
There are many things that I am thinking about adding into the game. The following is a partial list:
- Add user fights
- Possible InterBBS capabilities?
- Add content before the current game time frame
- See if someone can possibly create some decent ANSI screens... :)
The game is now open to users on Castle Rock BBS! From the Maine menu select option '8' for Panther's Playground. You will see a few other MPLs that I
threw together, along with The Dark Tower Adventures.
I have been in the process of changing and modifying some things in the game, but have decided that I should put it online and see what others think about it. :)
There are still modifications being made to this game, so please let me know what you think, and what you feel should be changed/added.
