Very basic prototype for arrow key/button control in online Inform games

I posted in this thread, but I wanted to share it on the main forum.

People were discussing using arrow keys or clickable buttons to navigate parser games. I made a simple proof of concept on what that would look like:

You have to type ‘yes’ before any of those things work for dumb technical reasons I list in my post. But then you can either use arrow keys or clickable buttons.

I just wanted to throw this out there to see if people would actually like it or not. I’m not sure I like it myself but if people want it it’s something I could add to bisquixe or a separate interpreter!


I’ll have to try this later, but I enjoyed playing Inside the Facility with direction buttons.


Thanks for mentioning that game! I only played the original version, so I forgot that he had done that. That’s a much better way for people to judge whether they like buttons or not, since he even added a cool map!
