    Text Base Game Design

    Hello all,

    I have recently came across a free credit for a domain name. I am deciding what to do. I have been looking and it looks like text base games on the web are becoming increasingly popular. Such as www.infamousgangsters.com and www.hackerforever.com . So I decided to look into them more. Does anybody know what books/resources to look into this more? I have and will continue to search google, but I would like to know from people that have had experience with these.

    Thanks a bunch

    Heya

    I know extensively (x)html, css, javascript, and C#.
    I am beginning to get the grip on PHP, MySQL, and ASP.

    You will need to know PHP and MySQL well to be able to make Text based games. You will also need to know how to use PHPmyAdmin

    Not a problem for those, I have several books/tutorials on learning that. But none specific for text based games.

    Do you have any resources (or anything else) that you have used in the past? Are you also a developer for hire possibly?

    I used www.w3schools.com to learn the things required to make these. There isn't really any tutorials to show you how to make these type of games. You can hire me but PM me if you want to hire me as this is not the forum for that.

    You just need GOOD PHP skills and logic to make games. If you can make a psuedo code / logic for the game, just learn good PHP and do it yourself.

    I have coded gamed like tic-tac-toe, crosswords, sudoko etc. in the past and that was fun.
