Dark Reign

Author Comments

I would like to present my text game/interactive fiction. „Dark Reign” is a strategy text game in which the player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots. Note – one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new. Feedback is very much welcome. Very, very much.

Well, the text shows up as black text against a very dark gray background. And it doesn't fit in the game canvas, so basically it's unplayable because on the first screen after starting a new game there are no accessible choices to click within the viewport which can't be scrolled with arrow keys or mouse wheel.

This will mostlikely get blammed, but that's why and those should be fixable problems by setting a light background color and adjusting the text size and location. A playable re-upload would probably do better.

When i start a new game, it just gives me black text i cannot see (I have to scroll to see it). It doesn't give the me option to move on. This game sounds interesting but there is no way to actually play the game.

When I started a new game the explanation was too long and it got clipped by the border of the game area. I was unable to continue because I couldn't click "I understand" at the end.
