So me and my friends are basically the biggest role-playing nerds ever, and we all love adventure games. We basicly write adventure games out on paper, get the group together, and play them. But lately, we have all decided that it would be more fun to code computer based adventuree games. Basicly, I want to know how to go about doing this. Basically the games will be in the style of Zork or Colossal Cave Adventure. At this point, I have a few questions about how I will go about making this game.
1: How do I go about making the players input thing to move around, pick up objects, ect.?
2: How do I make an inventory that the player can check?
That's all I can think of know, but I might have some more questions as I get more into programming the game. Thanks in advance.
