I am more in favour of free games for retro-computers, BUT I would definitely buy a Collector's Edition boxed version !

Please post with thoughts. The game is ready to go at any time really, then I can start on the next one!

Hi,

Can you give a summary of the game?

Free is okay, but I do not mind paying for new software.


Regards,

Derek

It's a text adventure written in ACT, set in an alternate 1980s, with a cyber punk style edge. You have to infiltrate an office block and complete various tasks.

I'd like to think all the locations have proper descriptions, and everything has it's place, and is well planned and thought out.

There is no, you are in a yellow room, you can see a toaster. Or you go west, fall down a pit and die etc.

As ACT compiles stand-alone executables, there is no need for it to run the game.
