This assignment focuses on:
- developing an appreciation for interactive fiction games; and
- paper prototyping and user interface design.
This is a solo assignment. You may discuss the assignment only with your instructor.
Explore the original (interactive fiction) Adventure game.
Play the game Colossal Cave Adventure on-line.
Create a paper prototype of the game's map:
- indicate commands to get you in and out of different places, and
- other useful information.
You should do this on your own, without looking for on-line help. I am expecting to see a unique map.
Submit your map as a PDF document via WebCT. Be prepared to talk about the game (and demo it) to the rest of the class.
Include your name, date, class, and a short description at the top of the page.
