Beta testing request - short parser game - The Basilisk and the Banana


I have a short parser game in progress for the Text Adventure Literacy Jam. It’s my first attempt at a parser game and I would love to have someone(s) try it out. It’s (very) loosely based on Greek myth, and called The Basilisk and the Banana. It’s co-written and coded with my 8-year-old son, so it’s somewhat daft and definitely SFW.

My main concern is that it structurally works - it’s intended to be relatively straightforward with not-too-challenging puzzles, but I still would love to know if there are spots where obvious commands aren’t implemented, or it isn’t clear what to do. Or where responses don’t make sense if you go about things in a different order that I haven’t considered.

It’s on, just password-restricted, so let me know and I can give you the link.


I’d love to help out!!

raises hand Me please! Sonnet was good. Since this is your first parser game, I’ll be more lenient with my judgement. As compared to someone like Mathbrush. Thank you!

I’d be happy to playtest as well!

Thank you, messaged you all.
