YOU HAVE FOUND A STAIRWAY
YOU SEE LIGHT ABOVE
DO YOU WANT TO GO UP
OR STAY ON THE SAME LEVEL?

Anyone feel like firing up the old C-64?...Ok, Trash-80s are welcome too, I guess.

If so, I'll meet ya over at "The Worthy Meade Inn", ok?


That pesky demon...on level 1!


Oh and yeah Zork, Rogue, nethack, Adventure....etc....all great games, back in the day.

Man I used to work in the geek...err..computer lab on campus back in my college days...the main lab was mainframe based, and on the unix system we would play the ol' text based, ASCII layout type...I just can't recall eaxctly which game it was...ugh.

I'd be right in the middle of some heated dungeon crawling...hehe..and some dork would come up with some lame question about their code. I mean, couldn't they see I was doing something important?!?!?


Anyway, yeah that was circa 1990 or so. Taking the way-back machine a bit further, my bud that first introduced me to D&D (Basic Set), "back in '81"...he had a C64 and we would fire up Adventure and Telengard, and many others.

Around that same time (highschool though, so '83-'86) our computer science class/group had a full Cromemco mainframe at our disposal...and of course when we weren't pounding code, or typing up our D&D character sheets in the horrific yet cool for the times editor/WP, to printout for the coming weekend's session, we all would play it's version of "Adventure".....awesome times.
