New dos game "Cross Country Trucking"

Post by mrelijahgardner »

I have finished a new game I've been working on. Its based on the text based game Big Rig. I have tried to keep the feel of the original game while improving the interface and visual aspects.

Ive wanted to do an Oregon Trail style game since I was a kid. I could never really think of a good topic to do and didn't want to do a clone. I felt this would be a fun project.

So basically this game is a 1990ish sorta edutainment simulation style game where you drive from Los Angeles to New York.

I have attached a copy if anyone wants to check it out.

I registered to say that I really like your game. Has a wonderful retro feel, like BIG RIG.

I'd like to know if the QuickBasic sourcecode is available for your game. I'd like to correct a few errors (spelling) and make some enhancements, "for fun" and for only my personal use! Perhaps add stuff like more events than can happen (tire blowouts, accidents, hijacks, other "rare" things), a southern route, etc.
