Dare You Explore Castle Doune?

Nov 24 2005

Because I increasingly believe that knowledge workers can’t afford to let their skills atrophy, I’ve been learning the Python language lately. To learn it, I started a simple project: writing a text adventure (like Zork, only much less ambitious). I just finished it and uploaded it, so now you can explore Castle Doune yousrelf.

(Castle Doune is the name of the first castle seen in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The layout of the game’s castle is similar to the layout of the real castle.)

I finished it this morning, actually, as I waited for my parents to arrive for Thanksgiving. I baked an apple pie last night, and will be making muffins once they arrive. Mom’s bringing potatoes and the pumpkin pie. I’m looking forward to it greatly; this has become a family tradition.
