Be a part of the rise of #adliberum, a multiplayer compatible text adventure engine that will grant both player and creator incredible depth. The aim is to create tools that create engaging text heavy adventures; whether for an author that want's to breathe new life into their books; fans of the classic text adventure OR people that want to experience games in more detail.

v1.7.7logo


Each hour I spend working on my Adliberum text adventure engine, the more real it becomes.

The latest additions being the beginnings of what will be a revolutionary text-based combat system and the scripting / crafting system built in.

SURVIVAL:

Your character will require equipment to survive the many trials the world may throw your way, e.g. in the dystopian base kit; radiation, sand storms etc. This will be made harder by limiting the amount the character can carry / use and equip.

In the video below; the player uses a rad suit to prevent gaining more radiation poisoning, using a geiger counter to alert them to rads.

COMBAT SYSTEM:

First and foremost entering combat is done by issuing combative commands against a character, creature or other in the world. For example hit wolf. Your character and the wolf will both enter combat mode.

Within combat mode you will trade commands, until the combat is over (one has perished) or combat is evaded / broken up. Focus can be switched in real time simply by using another combative command against another entity.

Focus will then switch to them being the new target.

External characters / creatures etc can interrupt, join or even affect the flow of combat. E.g. someone might chuck you an ammo clip, or grab you.

Combat mode can be escaped by leaving the room.

CRAFTING / SCRIPTING SYSTEM:

This is what makes the engine most powerful. Creating levels; as easy as writing plain English commands (more languages to follow post release)

For example:

.... from the simple ....

HELMET:

  • is wearable;
  • head protection;

PISTOL:

  • is equippable;
  • is a gun;
  • uses rounds;
  • standard clip;

.... to the more complex ....

LOCKER:

  • can not be taken;
  • can be opened;
  • is breakable;
  • is closed;
  • has a lock;
  • is locked;
  • set locker.key=locker key;
  • set locker.desc=A metal locker.;
  • is a large container;
  • set locker.1=food rations;
  • set locker.2=9mm clip;
  • set locker.3=9mm pistol;
  • set locker.4=medikit;
  • set locker.5=empty;
  • set locker.6=empty;

Notice the above locker has specific items stored within, the power of the scripting system will soon allow you to be able to specify a random item type e.g. ?consumable ?armour ?weapon etc.

Simple, yet immensely powerful at the same time. PLUS the engine also handles external script files to make adding extra content to your world/s a sinch.

Three of the key focuses for the engine are; expand-ability; customise-ability AND most importantly; freedom.

More updates to follow.. in the meantime, give it a try AND you can now download v1.7.7 from the downloads section.

Dangerously close to an early release version of The AdLiberum Engine! Lots of updates and now at v0.2.0.1 at Adliberum.com

Keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime I'd best get populating Wiki.adliberum.com

Best, Liam

Hey! Wow thank you! Really appreciate it. Keep your eyes peeled, the aim is to get it to a base level with dystopian, fantasy and scifi base kits built in; and hugely moddable through the both the scripting system, additional tools, the configs and built in editor commands for the initial release.

Can't put a time frame as of yet, but I'd like to have the base version available by middle of 2017!.. all being well.

Shout if you'd like to get involved sooner, actively looking for pioneers. Liam
