ICT Michaelmas Term Part One : Year 7

November 20, 2012

We began the term by playing one of Mr Leach’s favourite games from his childhood – the text adventure game, Zork. We discussed the reasons why it was a text only game and as a result could see how the performance and power of home computers have improved over the past 30 years. Mr Leach then explained that we were going to create our own text adventure game called “Escape from Winchester House”. We began by creating a map of the school so that we could create the locations in our game. We then used a piece of software called Quest to build our game. We had to write the descriptions and then programme the game so that keys could unlock doors and objects could be revealed. This project was interesting because it combined creative writing with computer programming.
