27 is just a number I pulled out of my hat. I really have no idea how many times I’ve made or attempted to make this project. I even have a historical one on the website right now. The old one never made it very far, mainly because I was storing everything in a database, and the database was getting complicated, and all edit actions were happening on the server and that was getting very complex as well.
And it was named “Dungeon Delver”, because “Text Adventure Maker” sounded too lame, and still sounds too lame. The current incarnation is called “Adventure Maker“.
At the moment, a person can create directions, portals, items, and locks. The complete set of entities includes traps, monsters, epilogues, rooms, roomportals, roommonsters, roomitems, a character, and an introduction.
The concept dates back to my time of programming in TRS-80 CoCo2 BASIC. I had made a similar text adventure maker after being inpired by the Adventure Construction Set for the Commodore 64.
Anyway, its a fun toy to play with.
