Tidy Text Adventures


Hello tool enthusiasts!

After the release of "Ball of Woe" I gave myself an early Christmas present - and took a few weeks 'off' to develop our new tool: "Tidy Text Adventures".

Tidy Text Adventures is a zero-code-required tool allowing you to build Text-based Adventure Games right inside Unity. That means... you can build them to whatever platform you wish to - and generally enjoy all of the benefits Unity has to offer.

So how does it work, in general?

  1. You create a new Adventure.
  2. You create a Room and put it in your World Map (see above).
  3. You create an Item and put it in your Room.
  4. You create some UseCases with which your player can interact with the Item (e.g: "Smash Teapot with Hammer")
  5. You add some Language with which the player will drive the world ("North","South","Look", "Take")
  6. You press 'Play'!
And some of the features?
  1. Super-intuitive design layout.
  2. Contextual help for every field.
  3. Inbuilt scheduled backup system - never lose your work!
  4. Styled UI provided - all you need to do is make your Adventure and press 'Play!'
  5. Full source code provided. Because people seem to like that.
  6. The same obsessive support you've come to expect from me.
That's really the sum of it. 

A pure, simple form of gaming using the most powerful graphics processor known to man: The human mind.

(That's a paraphrased reference to The Big Bang Theory)

You can play a short demo right here - during which you explore the trials and tribulations of making my morning coffee: "Hello, Strawman".

The tool was approved in record time and caught me unawares - so I'm busy stocking the documentation site and making help videos. In the meantime, have an explore - it has contextual help and is very intuitive to use.

Enjoy!
