The Curse of Rabenstein

The Curse of Rabenstein (C64 version) copyright (c) 2020 by Stefan Vogt and Puddle Software.

Rabenstein is a text-/graphic adventure for C64, Plus/4, CPC, ZX Spectrum (+3, ESXDOS, Next), Amiga, Atari ST, DOS and modern PC. If you just want to play it, head over to and grab yourself a copy. This repository is for educational purposes only.


Rabenstein was developed with DAAD Adventure Writer by Tim Gilberts. It makes use of the new DRC compiler as well as Maluva, a pixel image addon by Uto.

This code very likely is a mess. Don't say I didn't warn you. It was not meant to be shared but since I get many requests asking how this and that is done with DAAD, I decided it makes sense to just take the source and put it out there. The DRC source file is rabenstein.dsf and that's the file where you likely learn the most from. There are Bash build scripts for each target included. I'm Linux based so that's all I can give but I think it gives you a pretty good idea how well you can automate the build process. Please keep in mind that some paths are hardcoded and external tools executed from the script are not inluded, meaning it is unlikely you are able to get this building without modification. The C64 directory art is made with Petmate.
