We all have different ways of 'relaxing', some of us like to read, some of us
like to paint and even one or two of us like to play adventure-games. However
the vast majority like nothing more than to settle down in front of their
television and watch their favourite programme(s). Our tastes all vary and what
appeals to one can be sheer rubbish to another - but that is what makes the
human-race so interesting. This game is a 'tribute' to one man's favourite
George E. Hoyle was/is a great fan of the series Red Dwarf and it is on this
that he has loosely based this game. Do not be misled; this is not a spoof of
the series, nor is it an attempt to duplicate it - it is simply a genuine
tribute to something that George has a great love for - so don't expect to
uncover some great 'depth' or 'meaning' in the game. Just sit back and enjoy a
light-hearted romp through some of George's favourite scenes from the first
series of the programme.
The Story So Far
Due to 'circumstances' beyond even your control you find yourself awakening from
a rather long (to say the least) doze - not only that but you appear to be the
only human 'life-form' in the nearby vicinity. As is usual in these sort of
situations there is one slight light on the horizon ... if that is what you can
call it. Everything on board seems to be in working-order and with a bit of luck
and some kind of 'guidance' perhaps you can just find your way home again.
This game will recognise all the usual commands such as EXAMINE, LOOK, GET, DROP, etc, however you will also be able to converse with any characters that you may encounter on your travels. To do just that simply type the command(s) in the following format... SAY TO FRED "WHERE IS THE CAT?" and, if the command is
understood, an answer will be forthcoming.
The game will also allow you to save your 'position' to RAM but please use the standard save routine(s) in order to make a more permanent record on tape or disk. Typing the word INVENTORY (or the abbreviation I) will not only display your present score but also list any items you have in your possession at the time.
Remember, even 'identical twins' can fall out and come to blows - so just follow
and wait. Not all obvious things are immediately visible at first, so make sure
you do a good search. Trouble with the 'directions' then just try using RIGHT, LEFT, FORWARD and BACKWARDS.
The following utilities are also available to allow you to edit the supplied screens of this game:
