submitting new games

i have submitted a game by using the submit link on the webpage. Just wanted to confirm that this is how to submit new games for the database and not just for updating games that are on there already. Thank you

Andromeda 3

been playing this game for a while now this is second time around. Got the same problem as last time, I have completed most of the game but i am now stuck again. I cannot kill the oasis beast and I have a code number but nowhere to use it. Anyone else played this? any help would be appreciated.

Good luck with your game.
Well I decided yesterday to switch from quest to inform for the game. There seems to be more games written with it so it should be accessible to more people. Bit of a nightmare moving the code today but think I've got the hang of it now.

Always nice to hear fro...

Re: hi all

Hello and welcome, urbanghost! Nice to hear from someone who is so dedicated at playing (experiencing) games instead of just putting them on a shelf for collection purposes :) Thank you for your welcome. I couldn't own a game and not play it. Games are for playing not for looking at and they deteri...

I have recently started back playing text adventures and I have a collection of a few thousand adventure games on various 8 bit systems. I have a C64, VIC20, zx ...
