Fashion Quest

Fashion Quest is an interactive fiction framework being created so we can make a text adventure game about fashion because we love fashion and we love text adventure games.

You need Shoes to use this so download Shoes now to your computer:

http://shoesrb.com/downloads

Games created with the framework define the game using YAML files and bits of Ruby. Four test games come with the source.

The game "Fashion Quest: Daydream" is very small and mainly for demo purposes. It lives in the "game" directory.

The game "Pirate Adventure Knockoff" is a port of the 1978 text adventure "Pirate Adventure" by Scott Adams and lives in the "pirate_adventure" directory.

The game "Cloak of Darkness" is a port of a game that is used to compare IF frameworks. It shows how a game can be defined using one file (as is possible with games written using Inform and other frameworks). It lives in the "cloak_of_darkness" directory.

There is game stump in the "new_game" directory that can be used as a blank slate when starting development of a new game.

To try any of these use Shoes to open run.rb and select which you'd like to play.

Documentation is slowly evolving and can be found in:
