A planned Christmas update turned into a planned New Year's update which in turn led to this first update of 2019. 2018 saw a lot of activity on the site, and as always I'd like to extend my thanks to each and every one of you, whether you're an active contributor or simply use CASA as a site for reference and inspiration.

The year ended on a slightly dissonant note, as users in the forum didn't quite agree on which path the site should take in the future. The site grew out of my interest in the 8-bit scene, which should be fairly obvious if you browse through the games we cover and the people we've talked to over the years. But there's also been an extensive development in adventure gaming since Inform entered the scene some 25 years ago. I'd prefer to cater to our core audience whilst acknowledging that adventure games have continued to evolve since the decline of the 8-bit era. Judging from the debate, it's obvious to me that I need to tread carefully.

This subject nicely ties into the fact that in a short while, CASA will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Where we've come in 20 years and where we'll want to go from here is certainly food for thought.

Happy New Year and happy gaming in 2019!

Random Game

Survival

Plot

It is the year 1991. You have crash landed on the Earth's moon. Your mission: survival!

Notes

This adventure was published for home brew S-100 bus system computers in Creative Computing magazine, vol. 8, no. 1, January 1982, pp. 142, 144, 146, 150, 152-153. The article included general guidelines for conversion to other BASICs and specific guidelines for conversion to Apple II Applesoft BASIC and TRS-80 Level II BASIC.

Moon Survival for the Atari 400/800/XL/XE appears to be an unofficial port sold commercially by Keypunch Software. Survival for the TRS-80 MC-10 appears to be another unofficial port, but with several small changes.
