A game engine for Choose Your Own Adventure games

branch: master


The aim of this project is to create a Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) game engine that can be used to quickly create fun games.

So far all you can do is play a CYOA called "Kolb & The Dragon" (instructions below).

This requires ruby >= 1.9.2


To install, type this into your terminal:

$ git clone git://
$ cd kolb

You can also download this game as a zip file.

To play, type

$ cd kolb
$ ruby bin/kolb.rb

When playing, you interact with the game by choosing between different actions to take.

Enter the cold cave (17)
Enter the windy cave (8)
Walk up the trail (12)

Choose an action by typing the number you see in parenthesis and hitting enter.

If you want to quit, just enter in q or quit.

What I'd like to do next

Currently doing cleanup.

Kolb & The Dragon

I found a CYOA book while playing Skyrim called Kolb & The Dragon. I decided to create a similar program as a programming exercise this morning (1/7/12).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
