Dr. Theobold: A Text Adventure Game

I am coding a text-adventure game in PicoLisp:

The bulk of the room is filled with a metal gun-shaped device, covered in complex wiring and electronics. The gun is pointed at a transparent glass sphere.

Exits: west

> use gun

The device fires a powerful but focused blast of energy, which passes through the glass sphere and scorches the wall.

The project is hosted here:


and the project files can be retrieved with the command

git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/dr-theobold.git

The game is not yet complete, but it is playable with over twenty rooms so far. If you would like to be notified when the game is finished, join the mailing list:
