Hello. I’m Bob, I’m an old fart and for a few years I’ve been working on a labor of love to old fuzzy memories. Oh I know its as amature an adventure as they come but it is feedback I desire.
Back in 1992 I played the original “Alone in the dark” video game and its introduction to the “lovecraftian tropes” stuck with me ever since. Various attempts to make a quake map based on Derceto and a fan fition failed but I can do fractional stuff and a game book seemed right up my alley. I knew I could do this ‘conversion’ of “alone”. and most importantly I knew I could complete it. So I got cracking at it, most often after 11pm after long days at work.
After I had the framework set out using Advelh 2000 game book creator on my old XP laptop It was suggested that I spice it up more and start making it an original creation. So I rewrote the entire back story, swaped out a lot of monsters, added a ton of paintings to the haunted house, etc etc. Oh a lot can still be identified as coming out of ‘Alone’ but the detail makes a big difference. It makes the video game feel like a cartoon in comparison.
That laptop had no integrated spell checking so it’s still a beast of uncorrected errors but the game is what I desire most to be reviewed. I know a ton of dice rolling needs to be riped out and it feels more like a portable county fair horror ride that fawns over lovecraftian tropes than an auctual haunted house.
Yes this is a game book and not a computer program affair. Pencil, paper, two dice and preferably an E reader. What can I say Im old and the 80’s was my time.
I’m not going to do any spell checking until I have major sections rewritten after constructive feedback from reviewers. So whomever peeks at this thing has to have a strong stomach for bad spelling.
So anyone interested?
