Guilded Youth is a text adventure written and designed by Jim Munroe, with artwork by yours truly. We’ve just submitted it to the Interactive Fiction Competition, and you can play it online now.

You play Tony, a fourteen-year old thief who needs some help looting the legendary Oakville Manor. Luckily it’s the 1980s and finding fellow adventurers is just a modem squeal away…

I handled the artwork, much of which was created in AsciiPaint, a terrific (and free) ASCII art program for Windows. The project came to life at TOJam 2012, and we continued to develop and tweak it in the following months. If you’re curious to read more about it, check out Jim’s blog post.
