Adventure at the 8-Bit Assembly

DORM text adventure game

You’ve heard about the 8-Bit Assembly for ages, and this year you finally get to attend for yourself! You’ve been looking forward to it all year, and you plan to participate in everything the event has to offer.

Sure, you’ve heard the rumours of black magic and bizarre occurrences at Rockwurst College. But those can’t be true, can they? The guys on the Eaten By A Grue podcast must’ve been joking. Funny that they never put out another episode after they attended the event. That’s probably a coincidence.

I mean, it’s an Apple II convention. What’s the worst that could happen?

Dorm is a text adventure in the style of Infocom games from the 1980s. There are no graphics. There are no sounds. There's only typing. You type a command, and the game responds with what happens next. It's like homework, but fun.

Like classic text adventures from the 80s, the game package also comes with "Feelies" that will help set the mood. The Feelies are part of the game: they include information vital to solving some of the puzzles.
