Legerdemain v0.9.6 now available
« on: April 23, 2008, 03:16:53 PM »
Hi folks!

A new version of Legerdemain is now ready for consumption! There's never
been a better time to visit the surreal, Unicode-rendered world of
Phenomedom. Besides, in what other world can you:

-go bowling with skulls?
-take a bath at the Elysium?
-do battle with cannibals and dream porridges?
-hang out with snake charmers?
-watch boogadahs gorge themselves?
-delight in pies half-eaten?
-wade through 120,000 words of garish prose and crudely-rendered vernacular?

Come on in, enjoy some fiction from a roguelike perspective!

Cheers,
Nathan

That can be arranged! The game is multiple .jars, so I was thinking along the lines of a single compressed tarball or .zip file, and then a batch or shell script to start the JVM.

Is this what you had in mind?

Glad to see a new version of Legerdemain.

Congratulations!

I'll try to give the game a spin when I get some free time.

+1 My main computer has no internet connection at all (gasp! But good for work morale), and playing on a laptop means it's a hassle to wriggle through all those diagonal corridors. Still, I've met my demise in Phenomedom a few times now, and so far really like what I see. My first character found a brush in the prison, but I didn't know what to do with it, and ever since, I've been without this seemingly important tool, just brawling my way to the teratological village. I'm browsing the tutorials now, and it seems a brush is always generated in the first dungeon? In general, I find the lighthearted gothic mood really app(e)aling. The prose is quite nice in itself, and the characters charming. Your original post really got to me, seeing as how my own primitive rl framework already contains pies, snake charmers and knife-and-fork wielding cannibals. I've been wanting to skip food in that game (using scarcity of lamp oil to force speedy exploration instead), but I must say I'm tempted after playing Legerdemain, only because it would mean I could copy your "horse flesh rations". If you don't already know that classic work, I'm sure you'd thoroughly enjoy the Gormenghast trilogy by Mervyn Peake. His "Uncles and Aunties" poems might also strike a chord. "When Uncle Jake/ Became a snake,/ He never found it out./ And so, as noone mentions it,/ One sees him still about." :D

Oh, and happy may day to all of you. I'm sadly inclined to work (that's why I'm posting here), but in a few hours, I hope to be out on the barricades here in Berlin ;)

Kind regards from the Minotaur

Seems like you have a pretty decent awt/swing console implementation. 

Mind giving some tips/code?  I'd like to have the same thing but know practically nothing about GUI programming.
