I know some people find text-based games ("Interactive Fiction") a little dull, but I love them. I was seriously addicted to a certain text-based game back in the day, so I have a soft spot for them. This one is pretty fun - you're an, um, not-so-smart guy named Grunk who works on a farm herding pigs. Except you've lost one. Naturally, you need to go find it if you want to keep your job, but you don't have much direction as to how to go about that. Imagine you were actually looking for a lost pig and think about what you would do first. You'd listen for pig noises, wouldn't you?
There, I've given you your first hint. Oh, and in case you've never played these types of games before, just type simple commands: "E" for go east, "get shovel" for, well, get shovel... that sort of thing. Have fun!Link
