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.
