About the Story

'Explore the strange town of Deer Creek and use your knowledge of homophones and puns to help out the townsfolk and, hopefully, make your way back home!'

Deer Creek - The Homophones Adventure is an educational text adventure for students aged 9 years+. As well as being an introduction to text adventures, it has been produced as a tool to help teach primary school students about homophones.

You only need a few simple verbs to play it... EXAMINE, SEARCH, GET, DROP, WEAR, INVENTORY, TALK, GIVE, and the usual compass directions.

Contains a tutorial for newbies. Type HELP for a reminder of the commands... You can even use GO to quickly go back to places you've already visited.... e.g. GO LIBRARY

Deer Creek was created using Chris Ainsley's excellent Adventuron Classroom system. Adventuron is an incredibly easy-to-use, modern adventure writing system that allows authors, of any age, to make classic-style text adventures. Any games produced using the tool can be played through a web browser, on a PC or mobile device, without the need for additional software.

Thanks to the wonders of the A2P (Adventuron to PAW) converter (and some additional extra coding) a ZX Spectrum version is also available that's powered by Gilsoft's Professional Adventure Writer.
