Welcome to my Javascript Linrodeth Not-a-Roguelike

You've recently become a master painter and have managed to buy a small property in the ward of Oldgate which you've setup as a small shop and business. As you're a guildmember and property owner, you're now an elector for Oldgate. You've seen that the best way to help yourself get rich (or, at least, not end up in so much debt to the goldsmiths that you're just working for them), is to get involved in politics.

Can you become the alderman for Oldgate?

Games I've Created

18th January 2015 / No Comments on Games I've Created

I have created some games based in the Linrodeth universe. They're all ASCII games based on Ondrej Zara's rot.js javascript library, Alexandru Marasteanu's sprintf javascript library and on Dominic Charley-Roy's Coding cookies blog.

The games hosted here are:

Get Elected
A game based on the City of Linrodeth's election system - Can you become Alderman of your ward?
Spider Caves
A Roguelike based on exploring a dangerous cave system

In the past I've written plenty of games on my (now retired) BBC micro and Archimedes computers. Obviously1 these aren't hosted here (or actually on any currently working computer I own). I also, in my youth, wrote games for the Commodore Pet - but that's really showing my age 🙂

Footnotes

  1. Of course there are emulators for both of these, even emulators that run in the browser - however the code is on discs that would now be very hard to recover the data from. That's a shame
