Text adventure game, chat room, dungeon. Time waster.
But what does it actually do?
This is a place where you can chat, explore and play — evolved from what was once called a MUD or MUSH. We include verbal commands like those in Zork, other RPGs, and DOS/UNIX, but with far more natural language comprehension. You can play in your browser online anywhere. Meet up with friends, hoard treasures, compete, share, buy, trade…
Interact with the virtual world by entering text commands at the prompt. To perform an action, simply type what you want to do, such as
look at the mirror,
take an apple or
go north. Yes, many of these can be shortened for simplicity, eg:
take apple and
N (See the command reference for a few dozen additional command examples, out of many hundreds to be found).
There are innumberable secrets to discover, items to collect, easter eggs, sounds, jokes and tribbles in this burgeoning world, and a multitude of features still planned. Please join and be a part of the fun!
