Adventuron Classroom - Create your own family friendly text based adventure game!

Something slightly different for this end of the week retro heads up, as we've been contacted by Chris Ainsley that he has launched the Adventuron Classroom; a new fun way for parents and children to learn how to code together as a team. Yes indeed, if you remember the very enjoyable Excalibur: Sword of Kings text based adventure remake from Chris, then you'll know what to expect with this latest launch. As the developer is hoping that both children and parents can come together and create text based adventures using his own guided lessons and no prior programming experience necessary.

Chris has also told us the lesson plan uses Excalibur: Sword of Kings (released last week), as the subject matter, and over the course of the lessons, the reader will create a functioning game, with genuine retro artwork attached. "Adventuron Classroom is a course that describes how kids can design and code interactive stories, complete with visual and sound elements. The colourful built-in lesson plan introducing the text adventure game genre and how to create a complete game step-by-step".

Also as another news announcement which again relates to text based adventures, as he has told us of the creation of the Text Adventure Literacy Project (TALP); an engine-agnostic project to encourage the creation of text adventure games that are suitable for absolute newcomers to the genre. I offer the Adventuron port of Excalibur Sword of Kings to be the first game in this series, but I encourage others to create their own TALP games.

- So yes a very decent undertaking by Chris, who is not just thinking of his own works of adventure but allowing both Adults and Children to get involved and create fabulous adventures of their own.
