New text adventures with Atari 800 versions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

For the past few years author Davide Bucci has been creating multi platform text adventures. I came across them myself only recently, and I thought I'd share them on this forum since I don't recall anyone else linking them here. (Also, I had a hand at helping with the Atari ST ports but that's another story)

 

Two days to the race: http://davbucci.chez-alice.fr/index.php?argument=varie/two_days/two_days.inc

The Queen's footsteps: http://davbucci.chez-alice.fr/index.php?argument=varie/queen/queen.inc

Silk Dust: http://davbucci.chez-alice.fr/index.php?argument=varie/silk/silk.inc

All games are free to download and play. The Queen's footsteps also exists as a boxed physical item, but sadly no a8 version of it in the box. Very nice box art though:

The games are split into multiple parts in order to fit inside all the machines' memory.

 

What I've noticed is that the A8 versions of the games have no splash screens, but if someone can assist Davide with an easy way to include the images in his binaries, he'll be more than happy to update the versions.

 

So anyway, I've had fun playing the games, maybe others will too :).

I mentioned The Queen's Footsteps and Silk Dust here

https://atariage.com/forums/topic/315811-atari-8-bit5200-homebrew-completedwip-in-2021/?do=findComment&comment=4746970

but those games deserve a topic.

 

I made a colorful title screen for Silk Dust (titlescreens above are from other platforms) and author is willing to add it and to make a menu to select the desidered part of the adventure.

Sorry about that, seems like I didn't read that post fully!

@ggn You've written about three titles, including "Two Days to the Race", but I haven't seen any mention about Atari 8-bit version of this game. Are you sure that such version exists?

Hmm, you're quite right, I didn't check that one either (that first post is turning into a disaster!). However I will get in touch with Davide, see if he can create Atari versions of that adventure too.

Thanks, this is exactly what I planned to ask you in the next question :)
