Computer Adventure games lacked graphics, bells or even whistles and instead constisted of…. words. Linked together in labrynthine chains, they formed sentences and even paragraphs that were *Gasp* used to describe your environment…
Man, I miss text adventures.
So in a fit of nostalgia, I bring you the original Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy Text adventure that Infocom originally brought out back in the day.
Have fun 🙂
This is just too damn funny!
It always seems to come back to that now doesn’t it?
I was surfing around this vast little interweb of ours and stumbled across something that made my little geek heart go all aflutter. A size comparision chart.
No, not one comparing the cup sizes of the Star Trek hotties (though I’m sure that there is a cult dedicated to exacting those measurements somewhere out there), but rather a comparision of sizes for the various startships and vehicles of the various series and genres that we’ve grown to love over the years
You can check it out. and compare just how big Moya from Farscape is compared to an Imperial Star Destroyer from Star Wars, or a Galaxy Class starship from Star Trek is. And if you use IE to view the page, you can pick up and move the images so as they’re side by side if you like.
While surfing about I also stumbled across this fun and goofy little tool known as the Historic Tale Construction Kit which is a scan of the medieval Bayeux tapestry that depicts the battle of Hastings in 1066 that allows you to depict your own historic scene.
While I haven’t bothered to create anything respectable on my own yet, I will share with you this link to someone who has.
And lo…. the computer that was once a lowly and pathetic tortoise has ditched the cumbersome shell, added some street slicks and taken a dose of speed to become a new and improved racing gerbil of unsurpassed speed, agility and power.
Ugh, enough mixed metaphors already!
Uh, yeah. Anyways, The computer is back up and running once again. Yay me!
