AdventurOS RPG Game Uses Your Hard Drive's File System As Maps and Levels of Play
Basically, the game uses your files and folders to make a castle. Each folder is a room (connected to other folders/rooms), and the files become NPCs, enemies, decorations, and so on depending on their format and “weight”.
”The game works like a complex Metroidvania where getting to new levels requires exploring previous rooms, fighting enemies and solving puzzles to keep going,” wrote the team in a post. “Your main goal is to clean all the castle's rooms from the curse casted by the Intruder. To clean a room you must set all the NPCs free by killing the creatures that keep those NPCs inside them.”
The three-person team is looking to raise $10,000 on Indiegogo, and with 23 days to go, they’ve almost hit the $4,000 make. AdventurOS will be available for Macs, Windows PCs, and Linux machines; hit up the campaign page to get your perks if you want in on the ground floor.
