Talk:Text adventure

Jump to: navigation, search

This page pretty much describes old-school text adventures. I'm going to include a couple brief comments about the differences in newer interactive fiction (for instance, they all pretty much automatically understand "pick up") and link to the IFWiki. -- Slandor 23:21, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Dunnet and NetHack

transferred from the old wiki (--Tjr 14:02, 24 January 2011 (UTC))

There is not a single way in which any of the "dunnet" stuff is related to NetHack...? 91.177.181.206 19:12, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

It's a comparison, showing what a typical text adventure looks like and how the controls work, and compared to the NetHack equivalents for those things (the Guidebook describes Rogue as being notable for not being a text adventure, but rather giving a screen-oriented display like NetHack does). dunnet isn't the same game as NetHack at all, that's kind-of the point...
