Text Adventures with Java

Game Design

Forget 64-bit graphics, how about none?  If you’ve ever played Zork or Adventureland, you know that even without a single goomba or pong paddle, text-adventure games can offer an incredibly fun and immersive experience!  In Text-Adventures with Java, students learn the fundamentals of the Java programming language by coding an original text-based adventure game. Games can be anything from a Zork-y dungeon crawler (what do you want to do with “torch”?) or a computerized Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game (remember those?).  Anything is possible in the world of text adventures!  And the best part is, students aren’t expected to come in with programming knowledge, because, hey, that’s what we’re here for!
