Generally as an exploration and atmosphere freak, the more background you can put in the game the better as far as I'm concerned. My reply: That's precisely my problem. I'm also a "exploration and atmosphere freak" and that is the missing element in most audio games. On one hand audio games give me the ability of a live action real time game, but lack the exploration and background seenary I am accustom too. Text adventures, gamebooks, etc certainly fulfill the background seenary, sets the mood through text, but those aren't live action. So I'd love to merge the two somehow in the middle.

My reply: Yeah, that's really the only way to do it. Descriptions can get fairly extensive if you have a "describe_this.wav" file for every single item in the game. That's at least 50 files or more for Mysteries of the Ancients alone. Dark wrote: Hope this rambling wrant helps somewhat. My reply: It did. I really thought your suggestions were good ones. You and I think a lot alike. Cheers! --- Gamers mailing list __ Gamers@audyssey.org If you want to leave the list, send E-mail to gamers-unsubscr...@audyssey.org.
