Back in 2019, I made a short text adventure in Inform 7, an interactive fiction engine released around 1993. It was called Marchester Manor.
Marchester Manor‘s first iteration was a school project – a late 80s style text adventure set in an abandoned mansion in the Louisiana swampland, focusing on exploration and a gradual expansion of the world around the player as they found ways to proceed (keys, tools, etc).
This time I’m making it in Twine, which will give me a lot more freedom in terms of imagery & sound, and will also allow for me to make it web-based so I can embed it here.
Here is a short clip of Marchester Manor as it’s looking at this point in development!
