a DOS batch file text adventure


At some point I decided that it would be cool to make text adventures using DOS batch file utilities. I put together this little utility to set DOS environment variables and errorlevels in response to user keyboard selections. The result I called Batch Interactive Text (BIT) Adventures.

In collaboration, one of my BBS users and friends, Merlin Chowkwanyun (his real name), who was eleven-years-old at the time, was able to use the BIT setup to create an interactive text adventure. The theme of the self-titled adventure is based on the Power Rangers.
