Description

Rhythm-matching games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band urge players to respond to the appearance of coloured indicators on screen by pressing the appropriate and matching control on specialised input devices. Abstracting away the elements of timing which make this gameplay mechanism challenging and exciting, a round of a similar pseudo-guitar game is here simulated in a virtual bar surrounded by milling throngs who just might become your best friend -- or worst enemy -- depending on your ability to respond to the directions appearing on the screen. The catch? Player input and output is according to the conventions of text adventure games, with players reading instructions off the screen and responding by typing commands into a text parser.

Development

In slightly under two weeks the author concocted this, his first game and first experiment in Z-code, in response to a still image proof-of-concept posted by ianwarren on the b3ta forum.

Its browser play is handled through Parchment, describing itself as "a web-based Z-machine interpreter powered by the Gnusto engine".
