A new Crocodracula game has been unearthed!
You might remember back in 2017 when I discovered “Crocodracula: What Happened to Calvin” and ported it to Inform 7. Now the hands of bizarre coincidence have placed another Taleframe game at my feet: The first of their Crocodracula tie-ins, imaginatively titled “Crocodracula: The Beginning.”
I say “at my feet” but I could as easily say “on my shoulders,” since porting this game to Inform 7 has been an arduous and sometimes very painful process. Taleframe really did not want people copying their games. But I have plenty of free time these days, and the preservation of this piece of culture is more important than my emotional or physical well-being.
Fortunately, the port is almost complete! I just have to make sure I’ve disabled all the anti-piracy measures before I release it to the public. It should be ready by the end of this month.
When it’s released, I’ll put up a blog post with some background information as well as images of all the feelies. I am deeply indebted to Harrison Gerard for his assistance in getting high-quality scans of the packaging and ancillary materials.
