OK, if anyone around here has some interest in collaborating with me to create a Futurama interactive-fiction game (i-f: stuff like "Zork", "Adventure", etc). I have some ideas, but it'd be a lot easier if I had someone to help feed in the ideas so I can code 'em faster.  smile

Slavon's working on a Futurama adventure-type game... maybe you two can combine your efforts.

FutureFreak: I was in a weird mood that day.
Kryten: Thanks, I'll check into that next chance I get.
Shiney: Why thank you, although I have a hell of a time with other languages...  smile
Sarge: I've played THAT game. Don't expect graphics from my kinda programming.
Slavon: It's called "Inform," and it's based on the language used to make the ol' Infocom classics, if anyone remembers them...
Sarge: Heh.  wink

I'll be back. I hope.

Infocom .. sadly I only got to play the cames until after they were bankrupt ...

I say, have a try with the game

Marc, plenty of those games still exist. Apparently Activision holds the license to all the old ones, and have 'em on modernized cd-rom (yay, no more 5-and-whatever-inch floppy!) and a bunch of amateur games are out there.

I'm working on the game a bit. Umm...working title, "All In A Day's Work"...hmmmm...

I haven't played Zork or Adventure, but after reading mArc's post I think I know how will be the game. Can you take some screenshots from your current work?  smile

Right, as Kryten said, I'm making another Futurama game, an adventure like Monkey Island, Broken Sword or Discworld... Here there's a pair of screenshots:





Well, I don't know that "Inform" (I'm too young to know all the programming secrets of this world) I'm using DIV. Do you know it? is a language orientated for games (but not easy...) if you need help ask me for anything, I'll do all what will be on my hand  smile

They're just old school games from the era before games had to have graphics. You say "eat the elf" and it says "The elf doesn't want to be eaten, he flies away". Preprogrammed responses to anticipated commands, basically. Great fun.

Cool.
Slavon, i played your game, (i can't go anywhere in the damn tube!) And it was pretty cool. There were some English errors that jumped out at me. I can send you em if you want.

Another Futurama game would be awesome. (Shouldn't this thread be in Fan Art or General? its pretty futurama-related)

you can play "hitchhikers guide" online here: http://www.nulldevice.net/infocom/hitchhik.html

too bad one can't save, cause hitchhiker is a game of the many deaths   tongue
oh, and for hitchiker the eating was:
>eat myself
Stuffing yourself in your mouth would do little to help at this point.

sometimes the "parser" amazed me, sometimes annoyed me

Thanx  smile

Tip: at the moment you can't go anywhere in the tube, sorry. I'll continue the work soon. (and I hope the translation will be improved)

That's right, why aren't this thread moved to the fanfic or general forum?

Thats like 'hugo'. Based on the same kind of idea but with really shoddy graphics.

I have the original hitchhiker pc game from 1987... Even though it was fun, (I've read all the books) I played it for only 30 minutes, and got sick of it. I guess infocom games aren't my type. I have to see what I'm doing... Where's the fun in killing someone if you can't see him die, blood splattering on the floor, arms and legs flying in all directions...

By the way, here it is, hope you enjoy it http://home.no.net/kfnf2/stuff/The_Hitchhiker_s_Guide_To_The_Galaxy_1987.zip
You owe me one, mArc

Woah, thanks, Tor! I've been lookin' for that game since FOREVER...the only original Infocom game that I owned was "The Witness"...

If anybody out there has some free time, couldja think of creating a sorta map thing of the Old NY Ruins ( from "I Second That Emotion" )? That would help A LOT, since school is suckin' up my time...

By the way, did you know that they found a script for the 6th book in the hitchhiker trilogy? It will be published too!
