Hi, all. I'm hoping to play a time travel storygame. I've seen a few, but the time travel is more within the persons life, as opposed to general time travel through history. Preferably a game in which you can go to multiple points in history, kind of like in the Back To The Future Trilogy, but lf not, something akin to Outlander will do. I haven't been able to find any on this or any other site.
If you're into buying old things off Amazon or Ebay, there was an entire series of Time Machine gamebooks in the 80s. Each one set you off on a specific mission: find the last living dinosaur, find the musket that fired the first shot in the American Revolution, learn who the Red Baron really was, find Panch Villa's death mask. Each one had you bouncing around in time gathering clues, until finally the mission was completed.
As I recall, there were about 25 books in the series, but to my knowledge it was never reprinted.
Oh, yeah. I think that is a spin-off of Choose Your Own Adventure. I was kind of hoping to play something online though, as lt could be a while before I would be able to buy anything. I'm a bit disappointed that noone has thought of this.
Hi, thank you for the in-depth response. don't have a computer at the moment, so I doubt IF games would work. I would like to start one, in fact, I just recently came up with some good ideas. It could be awhile before I'd be able to start working on lt though. Jigsaw seems like what I'm looking for, I'll check that out.
Actually, scratch that. I just tried The Hours & lt works fine. I thought at first that you were talking about DOS games.
I'm trying to play Jigsaw. Maybe I'm just a dumbass, but the game keeps ending uneventfully. I walk around, pick things up, examine them, walk around some more. The clock strikes 12 & I, 'succumb to the party', then the game ends. It's a critically acclaimed game, so I must be doing something wrong.
Through Time I came across, but like I said, that's more within the confines of the protagonists life. I want to travell through history. I actually do own The Cave Of Time & you just made Me want to play lt.
Seems interesting. I have nothing against that specific category, I was just mainly looking for something like The Cave Of Time.
I had an idea for a story like this in high school that I started writing on paper back then. I found it the other day looking for my old poetry (which I did not find). Perhaps I can transfer it to this site and update it...
This would be like sometime next year with everything I have planned now. It also is based on just American history--Specifically the civil war. Making a game where you can travel to many different times would be crazy to write.
That's true. I'd be interested to play lt. If you can remember, shoot Me a message after you upload lt.
Will do, if it ever gets done (lol).
Sorry to bump this thread after so many days inactive, but I am writing a time travel story. It is not the one I talked about, and it is also not a 400,000 word epic that explains a theory on how to time travel. It simply is a game in which the main character time travels to time periods before his lifespan. Note also that the story is more about the main character meeting authors in the past than it is about the time period itself. Hoping to release sometime near the beginning of next month...
