Wasn’t the “Text RPG” style know by a different name?

Yes, Text Based Gaming has a long history. If you are old enough perhaps you’ve heard of the basic computer game called “Zork” created by Infocom in the 80’s? Zork, used only text to describe a solo adventure. The player would use commands such as “climb”, “open” and so forth to move around. The game would then give a result to that command. Modern Text Based Games are just like that but with more detail and enhancements. For instance, a Text RPG like, “Ruler of Kings II” has a full interface to not only command but dictate the outcome!
