Do not confuse this with Adventure. You'll be sorry. Boy is it bad. Set in the author's high school, this "game" lets you enter one-letter commands (!) to wander around, talk, and kill people, until you perform some pointlessly fatal action. Rude text, PC internal speaker music, no saved games, no way to win. If the author has any idea that it's still available to the public, he is probably highly embarassed about it.

Not recommended., December 2, 2022

The Adventure was written in BASIC by some high school kid in 1988. The setting is a high school (presumably the author's) with just a handfull of rooms. It's basically a CYOA without the "A"; the required input is a one-letter command from a choice of six. All you can do is move (NESW), "K"ill and "T"alk. Wrong move kills you at sight. So all you can do is try and error until you reach the positive end? Punchline: There is no positive end. The longest chain of commands will still result in death.

Someone with too much spare time ported this game to Inform 6. Still pondering whether that was an justiciable act. Playing this game feels like unlawful detention. Pun intended.
