Text only games are a curious phenomenon. Unlike other kind of old games, they survived to this day in one form or the other. Maybe that's because it doesn't take a huge team to develop a game completely (or partially) devoid of graphics.
When I say text-only games, some of you already thought about interactive fiction. With this update I decided to show you that text-only doesn't necessarily mean interactive fiction.
