I am just old enough and just geeky enough to have some experience playing text-based adventure games, aka "Interactive Fiction." The four Ohio puzzle caches I'm featuring today and tomorow are all based on the same game, that I had great fun playing. More than once I hollered out to my husband (who spent a lot more time with this type of game than I did) "How do you think I should try to .....??" My son asked what in the world I was doing ... "You mean ... it's just words?" ... and it was fun explaining the roots of the computer games he enjoys so much. Have fun with:
Zany Squirrel - GeoQuest, Chapter 1 & Xtreme Arts - GeoQuest, Chapter 2
*Note that the in-game "help" website can be found here. Within that site is a link that explains the basics of how these games work.
Tomorow we'll continue the series.
