Feel free to visit any of these great websites. Iím not partnered with
any of them and I donít receive a dime if you click any of the links
below. Some of them you may have already heard of, others are just
cool sites that might get overlooked in the increasingly crowded world
Adventure Game Studio
Chris Jonesí amazing swapware game
creation utility. Updated often, vigorously supported and featuring a
robust support forum. Many of the Barn Runner games were made with this
Mark Overmarsí equally amazing game
creation utility. In addition to Adventure Game Studio, this engine is
also being used to create some of my games. Itís not swapware, but it is powerful and versatile enough to
justify the small price tag.
All the TackyWorld games are
distributed compressed with this powerful archive tool and you'll need it
to unpack and play our games.

Where old console game .midis go to be
Just Adventure Games
Reviews of all the classic and not so
classic games of yesterday. Take a trip back to the days when games
required quick thinking and not a quick trigger finger to complete.
Home of the Underdogs
Packed to the rafters with all the
games that made classic adventure gaming so great Ė And itís all FREE!
Download some of the greatest games ever published but PLEASE DONATE TO
THE CAUSE! All that bandwidth ainít free. Besides, they have the coolest
mascot ever and you know you need to buy a tee shirt with that kind of
cool printed on the front!
Reviews of some of the best freeware
games available on the net. They gave some of the Barn Runner games great
reviews, so you know they have good taste!
Ron Gilbert's (he of Monkey
Island and other classic LucasArts Gaming fame) editorial / rant
website. One of the greats of adventure gaming plus he has a fascinating
article in the archives about just how much work and money goes into producing old school
adventure games. Well worth the time of any game maker in the making.
A nostalgic peek into the early days of
the internet. For anyone who visited a bulletin board system back in the
days when BBSs were the only thing you COULD visit, this is the place for
you. Just browsing this site makes me remember when
Games was the
most cutting edge hacker coolness I had ever seen. I should have linked
this site from the very beginning as it is very much in tune with the
"retro-ness" TWI is all about.
The Watley Review
A great humor site with a
distinct feel. How would the world at the turn of the last century report
on the news of the world of today? Go there and find out -- and send them
an electro-mail while you're at it. Not updated as often as I would like,
but funny, unique and even more retro than TWI is!
