Text Based game Types

17 February 2015 - 11:35 AM

After a bit of searching on the internet, I have found only a few different types/genres of text based games but I am wondering if there is any other possibilities for this medium.


Currently I have found the following:

  • Adventure games (mostly like zork)
  • Roguelikes
  • Card/table top games

I feel I must be missing a large amount ( and probably oversimplifying many of these as well biggrin.png ) because the game industry is really creative about pushing a medium to its limits.


If you have any examples/thoughts of text based game types/genres, I would greatly appreciate it.
