Welcome!
« on: April 25, 2020, 07:28:21 PM »
Feel free to say hello to the other members so we can get to know each other. I'll go first.

I'm Freddy and I have been interested in Lovecraft and the pencil and paper game of the Call of Cthulhu for many years. I also remember the days of the ZX Spectrum and all the early text adventure games we used to play back in the day. Nowadays they call those 'interactive fiction' - and that is my reason for my starting this site.

I have been the administrator of another forum called AiDreams, which is about AI and Chatbots, for several years. Some time back I started to work on my own scripting engine to power chatbots. Late last year my interest in Lovecraft returned and I thought I would take my engine (called ElfScript) and expand it to running text adventures.

So that's a little about me and why I am here. I look forward to meeting anyone else interested in these things.

Hi, I'm Data and I like a bit of gaming in my spare time.

I will help, if I can, to develop games on this site. 

Hope my avatar is fitting, I'm a massive fan of electric cars so I had to get some electricity in my image.

Hi Data :)

Data is a friend of mine and we often work together. Good to see you took the plunge.

Your avatar is fine, I'm not going to be too strict, anything horror, fantasy or plain weird is fine!

Hi all, I'm Ivan  :)

I think I won't hang around so often, I just stopped by to have a look at the new detective game preview of Freddy's.

The game looks cool, I was able to go around rooms, and to pick up items. Graphics look nice and in the same style along the all rooms, which I find very professional. All worked as expected, there were no js or html code errors.

Good work, looking forward to test the future development versions.

Hello and welcome Ivan  :)

Many thanks for taking a quick walk through the game. Already I see I have to give more direction, but it is just the bare bones at the moment. It's just like a chatbot in a way, I can only anticipate so much, that's why the logs are so valuable as I can improve things and add new dialog as I go along.

I'm also glad you liked the graphics, I was aiming to have it look in the same style throughout, so at least so far I have achieved one of my goals.

Very cool there were no errors! I think a lot of the engine is done now, this leaves me with a lot of creative writing to do  8)
