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)
- Card/table top games
I feel I must be missing a large amount ( and probably oversimplifying many of these as well ) 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.
