Thanks to a comment on my previous entry, I discovered that there are tons of contemporary text adventure games at http://ifdb.tads.org that will work almost perfectly by voice. I’m currently trying out Dog Saves Baby, a comically gruesome game in which you are a dog trying to save a baby after its parents (your master and mistress) are dismembered by hillbillies after the car breaks down on a wooded road. The only commands you can use are ones that a dog could understand, so they’re nice and short and don’t make my voice tired. I only wish that this game retained some of the more common commands such as “look at,” which presumably a dog could still understand and do, but I guess if you’re a dog “sniff” would do just as well. I shouldn’t be doing this now — I have homework — but I’ll report my progress later.
