I came up with what I think is a pretty cool idea. I want to put a modern spin on an old-school Zork style dungeon crawler. I want it to be an entirely web based game. I want the core mechanics to be d20 based. I want it to have a natural language interface with a few basic commands like go north, attack slime with sword, cast magic missile, etc. I’d like to add an autocomplete feature that suggests inventory items or spells from your spell book. I want to parse the command line into RESTful Rails actions that send AJAX data to the JS front-end which controls the Canvas. I want user’s games to be continuously saved via MongoDB. I want the hero to have a familiar that gives “out of game” hints to the player.
I hope I have time to pull this off.
