My Super Mario Bros: World 1-1  (Memories of Play & Making)

Bitsy is a tool, by Adam Le Doux for making little games where you can walk round, speak to things and collect things. It's a lovely combination of restrictive and simple which can be a blessing or a curse depending on what you try to do with it.

That was great! I'm a big fan of the category of bitsy games that reinterpret spaces from other games. I wouldn't worry about academic papers if I were you, I think Bitsy is a perfect medium for game related non-fiction and more people will probably read it anyhow :p


Thanks. I'll always worry about academic papers, but I am getting more interested in games as tools for discussing game design.

I honestly like your game, because of how hard you worked on it with a program with so many limitations!

The coding language you were talking about with the goto command is batch (.bat), and I also played the game multiple times to read all the text boxes!

Thanks for playing. I think it was BBC Basic that I used to write text adventures in, not sure if that's related to Batch or not.
