The House

The House - 1.0.1

Adam Halley-Prinable (magicaxis)



a text-based adventure game with sound. i had music, but it was way too big. use your brains, solve riddles, use items, and think laterally, to escape the house. danger lurks around many corners, dodge the hazards to arrive at one of the alternate endings. this is my first self-concieved game, made in 14 hours. if this one ends up being good, i'll make a better one with images. please read the readme.


Now the game doesn't quit if you press enter without an option! ive fixed some spelling and grammar too. please let me know if theres anything else i can do.

You don't need the pygame window for sound. Just call pygame.mixer.init() and the load your sound stuff :-)

does anybody know how (or if) python can play sounds WITHOUT pygame?
that would help a lot, cos then every little thing i dont like can be fixed

..really? did you read the readme?
that pygame window is only there for the sound
its an all-console game

i had to change the line
games.init(screen_width = 100, sc........
#games.init(screen_width = 100, sc........
to get it work.

You might want to separate the tags up there, too--Right now, this game just has one really long tag.

go to 'your projects', then 'edit' or 'new release' for example
