Restmud - A Text Adventure Game For Testers And Developers


Published on

RestMud is a text adventure game for Testers and Software Folks. This describes the single player version. Download for free - you just need Java 1.8 to play.

Because these are 'text' adventure games they have a stripped down interface as the GUI, accessible in the browser.

'Rest' means that the game also has a REST API.
