Learn To Program Adventure Games

My latest free series of videos on YouTube considers how to go about designing and programming a text adventure game. I first became interested in programming way back in the 1980s after playing games such as Zork and Colossal Cave. My series takes you through the basics of adventure-game development. It's not language-specific: it discusses the programming strategies you may wish to adopt to create games rather than the nitty-gritty details of how to write a game in a particular language. Adventure games are great fun, both to play and to program. So why not give it a go...?
