So, on a whim, I searched for “Calixto Island”, the first adventure game we had for our TRS-80 16K CoCo. I was 7 years old. It used cassette tapes, including one I could wear my hands out playing, “Packet-Man.”
I found what looks like it, though possibly in Portugese, something called “CALIXTOP.PAK”. I also found an emulator called “MESS” and got it to load a TRS-80 COCO 2 ROM. That works. My first program
Now if I can just get it to load CALIXTOP.PAK or ADV3.DSK and run the game.
This came about because I was wondering: Why not write an adventure game. It could be web based. It would be an interesting way to mess around with vocabularies. I might be able to come up with some pretty interesting interface. And maybe start an adventure game community. People could contribute plots, code, and artwork.
