Text-Based Gaming

I’d like to talk to you all about “Text-based” games. They were the first of its kind in the gaming word. No graphics, just you reading a story and making decisions for your character throughout the game. Every decision you make will affect how the game will continue. Maybe it will end quickly, or maybe you make it all the way to the end. Or if you make it to the end do you get the good ending or the bad ending. It’s a simple concept, anyone can play these games and are easy to learn. Even your grandparents can pick it up pretty quickly.

One game that I recall playing recently is Lifeline from 3 Minute Games Inc. Imagine yourself as a lone survivor in space name Taylor. Spaceship crashes on the moon, and now you take Taylor and make decisions that could either help him survive or end his life out in space. To my fellow sci-fans whether its movies, games, or books, this one I think you will enjoy! It is available for download on any device. I believe currently its available for $1.99. I know free is better :), but for $2 I think it was worth it to play during lunch breaks or breaks at work, or if you’re like me a quick game to play while in the restroom lol.

I enjoyed this game, and loved all the different choices and outcomes, and has shown up as a top 10 “Texted-based” video game out right now. Overall the game was entertaining and I hope maybe some of you would try it out as well.
