Hi all!
I'm currently creating a game called 7 days in hell. This will be a textbased game, where you play as Jon Blake, 37 year old man, who is the murderer and he was sendet to hell on 7 days. You can ask here, give suggestions, and more. Currently, the game is in an alpha state. If you want, I can post here primitiv version, based on old engine, but I will change it, because current engine isn't supporting battle system and items.

Scary sounds and music would make the game real nice.

supported, supported!  in spite of having audio games with great environments, etc., etc., a good hold school text adventure is always welcome for me!

iPhone seems to be better because it is from Apple.  wait?  no emulators in the apps store?  fast!  bring me an android, help!

I think you should write up your own game engine. Fro the text game it is not hard, it cannot be/.

CSharp/Python/Any_Mainstream_language and you start coding.
Console UI, basic framework for the world, item, enemy ETC.
The only one difficulty might lie in the AI design.

You take your time and enjoy yourself. Don't worry about anything more than the game you want to make.

If you do write your own engine, is there any chance you'd consider open sourcing it? Not the game, just the engine.

let us know if you need help with the engine, i'm pritty sure there are a lot of people who can help

best regards
never give up on what ever you are doing.

@pates
I'd like to suggest (although obviously feel free to ignore me) that you just write your game, rather than writing an engine first off.

They require two wildly different mindsets, and it's not always as clear cut as "Ah well, text is easy". Imagine building a table, and building the tools while you went. Not only do you need to test your hammer doesn't break if you hit it at an angle, and your screw driver doesn't melt in the sun, but you have to iteratively test your table too.

@Chris,
it depends on what he wants from his game.
he can of course use a ready engine such as Ren PY ETC, but that is going to restrict him. Is he OK with it? I don't know! If so, sure, he can go his own way.

Sure, but "make systems that work for your game that are better than the alternatives" is a wildly different statement to "Write an engine with the mindset of sharing it with others".

No clue for text based stuff. No clue at all actually haha. Even Earwax, which I made myself leaves a fair amount to be desired.

Earwax is good, but it isn't stable jet and it don't have a lot of functionalities. I want good, accessible engine.
