Somewhere, Somewhen

About the Story

Somewhere, Somewhen is a large text-only interactive fiction fantasy game (with some humour) written for the PC using qBasic64. It is uploaded as a zip file, and all contents of this file (with the exception of Read Me.txt) must be present in the game folder for the game to run. It can be run from Windows or in a DOS window. Included in the game are detailed HELP instructions and hints (command HINT) in a form similar to invisiclues. These can provide a gentle nudge or a downright spoiler - the player's choice. Also inbuilt is full scripting, with the ability to view the script file in-game via the HISTORY command. The script file can be deleted as an option in the DELETE command. With the exception of suffering a fatality, which can of course happen, as far as I'm aware you can't paint yourself into a corner or get into an unwinnable situation in this game as could happen with some of my earlier games. On 8-June-2021 I discovered an obscure but significant bug which affected the restoring of a game in a specific situation. This has now been corrected. Unfortunately, saved game positions from previous versions can no longer be used.
