is it possible to make this type of game (in post)

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Feb 09, 2017 8:31 pm

ok so my favorite type of game is a text-based, which is also referred to as IF (interactive fiction)

well i like graphic games too of course :),

i have an idea for a game but im not sure if text based (note with graphics) is possible in construct,
theres a event called text box so it might (or not) be possible.

cause if it is i want to try, never made a interactive fiction with graphics before always wanted to though.

:D

Yes, it is possible. C2 might not be the Best option out there though. But it can (and has) been done.

yeah i know your probably right, but don't really got any other way to make one i tried looking up things on what i can use to make graphical text based games, like the old police quest (well only two of the series are text based)

well ill try c2 even though its not the best choice
thanks for the help :D

I've never used it myself but I heard that Quest is good for making text based games (I've done some research for my game). You might want to at least check it out. http://textadventures.co.uk/quest

already done actually i have quest but i aint very fond of it,
can't do much with quest when making verbs they dont work the way you want them to.

besides when i said graphical text based game, i mean a game with graphics and textbased, like you can see where your at and type to do stuff like actions.

not plain images though, i forget what these games where called but i think theyre known as text based adventures.

i think trying to use c2 is worth a try for this, wont know if i dont try :).

if you want to know what games these are like, http://sarien.net/ even has police quest and other quest textbased adventures. i dont know what device your on but you can try

They are just called Graphic Adventure games. Text-based would be Zork: https://textadventures.co.uk/games/view ... hz_vq/zork

uh i know what a text based game is i played basically i dont know how many of them.
like mindwheel, breakers, which are created by the same creator. as far as i know anyway.
sorry those where just examples :)

and i knew what it was... i just forgot the name of it. the games have text based, properties so i guess thats what got me confused.

played zork even though i didnt play much cause i wasnt sure what i was supposed to do,
, zork doesnt seem much fun to me kind of also
