Hi, just a fast question here. What would be the best and the simplest engine to make a game like Mu Complex. Mu Complex is a text based game set in a linux-like terminal, where you basically have to "hack" your way through the story and solve different kinds of puzzles.
Thanks

A text based adventure engine?  If such a thing even exists today?   Or ever did?  Its such an old game type and so simple to code there may be no "engines".   Did you try google search on "text based adventure game engine" yet?

It is text based, I have found some engines, but they dont have the ability to add graphical stuff, like the linux terminal here, or custom pictures and such.

Then its not text based (IE text mode only), its 2D graphics.

 

You'd need an "engine" or a collection of libraries and code that would let you display text, click on stuff, maybe enter text, and display 2d graphics (bitmaps).

 

I'm sure somebody here can make some recommendations on a 3rd party engine with those capabilities.  I use Dx9 and in-house code for such things, so i can't recommend any particular 3rd party 2D engine.

Alright, thanks.
Hope that someone can recommend me a good engine like that.
