DKM Text Puzzles are based on the concept of the old text adventure games (now referred to as Interactive Fiction). You are the main character and interact with the environment entirely with text commands - no fancy graphics or point and click. These scenarios are more puzzle (rather than story) orientated which is more appropriate for this site.

A "story editor" has been developed to author and run these puzzles/stories. However each has be created by the skill and imagination of a human author so there will be little content at first. If it proves popular, the editor may be opened to aspiring authors or those willing to contribute content to the site.

If you have never played a text adventure before, please go through this five minute walkthrough of an incomplete childrens story to get a feel for the genre.
