Damn, that's hard but epic.

Very, very cool, the idea of a meta text adventure is pretty neat, even if some amount of it feels hard to understand at first, but that's more a general issue of the genre. The game's ability to make your own game within it is pretty cool too, and certainly feels a bit more user friendly than most programs I've seen that attempt the same thing, if anything, the game itself is a tool, a tutorial to teach the player not just how a text adventure works, but how the toolbox of commands works to make your own creations. If I was a more creative person, or had an afternoon to spend typing up a game, I most certainly would!

I hope you do! Few have taken the challenge so far :-)

very good game but im not creative enough for it

Lovely, and it has a custom level system too, that's awesome!

Imagine you type "Help" and it worked...
