Fifteen years ago at college, I started a text-based game with a friend based loosely on Red Dwarf. It’s still being played today!
There’s a blog article about it written by Andy Longman (one of the longest running members) who’s been collecting memories from the last 15 years. See the article here.
It was my love of Blue Dwarf, and how the game is played – so simply using only text descriptions, that led to me creating OngoingWorlds, which makes it easy for anyone to create a game just like it.
