Oh Dimmy, another pointless forum about a game idea?
DimQuest is a fun text-based-adventure game that I've been doing over Steam for a long time. Not with most of the people of TWHL, though.
Then why the hell make a forum topic about it?
Well, the thing is that I haven't been able to find a lot of people to play it, really. And I figure I could make a reference point on some of the rules, and link people here. I also want to say "Hey TWHL, try this!"
Give us a little history of the game.
Well, it started out a long time ago on Omegle. That's when I realized that everybody on Omegle is stupid, so I tried doing it on Steam. Eventually, the game built up a fan base, and I actually did multiplayer environments..
Given the idea to add music, I would set it up to play music from Final Fantasy in different environments in the game, which I choose. I manage to do this over voice call, and I found I could also use that to have things like robots speaking, gunshots, and other different sorts of sound effects.
Not only that, but the game has a score system that keeps track of your health, personal information, money, skills, and items which you can access at any time you like. The game has sadly run out of people who play it.
A fan base, eh? What have some of the people done?
There's been numerous adventures.
o An Elven king who found himself a wife and went to war against the dwarves, but had his life ended by a wolf-man.
o A wolf-man who lie confused in the ash of his home city, and managed to another where he killed an Elven king.
o A dwarf who murdered two infamous jesters and was taken to the high capital where he attempted to murder the high king.
o A mercenary who went by the nickname "Swift" who visited an opera and constantly tried to win over a woman who goes by the name Rita, and commited suicide.
And that's just the ones I can remember.
Well, it takes place in the world of Edafers. The Elves have been at constant war with the humans, and nobody actually remembers why. They've reached a state of technology where they can use data computers, APCs, and robots. Since the war has continued for so many centuries, the only REAL way they can come to peace would be if one race killed another.
The humans have set up a specialized training facility named the College, which trains people to be special-equipped soldiers known as MeRs. (Mech-equipped Regulars), and they're given several different missions in the continuous battlefield that is the Iceland.
Meanwhile, the Elves are attempting to control their system of government, which is completely failing. Since monarchy died, dictatorship has risen and the Elves live unhappy lives in the desertland that is their home. Many internal rebellions and loss of resources has brought the Elves to a point where high taxes and conquest are needed to obtain resources.
What about the system of the game? How does it work? Rules?
Well, there are many different procedures that must be done during the game. Here is a basic list of rules:
1. Type in basic commands. Examples: "sit chair, equip gun, eat burger"
2. Equipment can only be used if equipped.
3. Type [score] to view your score.
4. Don't be lazy, if you need to get somewhere you have to act it out. "Don't do this: cross river, go to desert, kill person"
5. Remember to save your game before quitting, or before doing something you might regret.
