Text-Based RPG Engine

Posted 06 March 2009 - 03:11 PM

I'd like to try my hand out at creating a simple text-based RPG game engine in VB.NET but I haven't a clue where to start. Anyone that's interested in helping out, any and all ideas are welcome. And any contributions will be credited.

It's going to need:

Character creation system
Character stats system
Combat attack/defense system
Navigation system
And probably some other things I haven't thought of.

VB.NET is a good, powerful language, but I think C++ would be a better place to start.
http://prdownloads.s...9.9.2_setup.exe <-- C++ direct download, 13MB
There are plenty of tutorials on the web, all you really need is cout, cin, int, string, goto (yes, GOTO), and if.

I'm making a text-based RPG Engine, and I'll upload a blank source code for you soon.
In the meantime, get the hang of C++ :)

I appreciate the enthusiasm but this project kind of died when my friend dropped out of planning with me. Lol.

Oh well. I never got around to making the blank source anyway.

I'm fairly certain baavgai uploaded some code for a text-based quest style game somewhere on here once. Maybe in the Discuss or Share Your Projects or something to that effect.
