As announced in a previous blog post, you can now download an update to Text Zedventure that adds a bonus hidden ending to the House chapter and fixes typos across the game.
How do you get it? Simply boot up the game and it’ll download automatically. It’s also included in all future purchases, if you haven’t already bought it. (And you totally should!)
Also, there’s just one more week until the launch charity promotion ends. All profits for the game until May 31 will go to charity Save The Rhino (around 45p out of every sale) so buy now to contribute more to a good cause!
Dying to discover how many endings there are in Text Zedventure, or what secrets lie in the game? You can now discuss these and more with fellow players at the following two venues:
I’ll be keeping an eye on both forums, so expect input from myself from time to time. Have fun!
A new version of Text Zedventure has been submitted for peer review on Xbox Live Indie Games. It focuses on:
- Typo fixes across all chapters
- An additional “bonus” ending on the House chapter
It should hopefully be available very soon. If any XNA orXbox Live Indie Game developers want to check out the latest version to help speed up the review process, then please go here. Thanks!
…and it’s rather positive! The game has been out for five days now, and it’s already been featured in a variety of round-ups and reviews. There’s also some interesting discussions going on about the text-only adventure genre itself on Gamesradar and N4G, which is pretty fantastic in itself.

Anyway, a few choice quotes:
“Yet despite its simplistic, bare-bones nature, Text Zedventure creates the kind of tension and atmosphere that most games fail miserably to conjure up.” GamesRadar
“If you’re a fan of choose your own adventure stories then it’s well worth checking out.” GayGamer.net
“Text Zedventure is easily one of my favorite Xbox Live Indie Games. Not because it’s perfect, but because it honestly does something different from the rest of the games.” DIYgamer
“All in all this is a good albeit short take on one of gaming earliest forms and the story and accompanying sound design definitely hold their own. This is a nice bit of nostalgia at a good price…” Victoria Video Game Examiner
“An interesting attempt at a long-dead style of gaming and profits going to a good cause? Can’t argue with that.” Gamers With Casts

I can happily announce that Text Zedventure – a text-only adventure with profits going to charity – is now available on Xbox Live Indie Games!
It’s been in the works for far too long, so it’s great to finally see it available for purchase. All profits until the end of the month will go to charity Save The Rhino, and from then on 25% of all proceeds will continue going to charity. The faster you purchase, the more goes to charity, to download, rate and spread the word!
