Emissary (a.k.a. yet another space game) is a space adventure game for the Tandy Color Computer 3, currently in development. A multi-level BASIC game involving a lone space-traveller touring through the Universe, encountering strange phenomenon and other civilisations.
This is a game that I have been wanting to do since I was a teenager. Now, at 47 years old, having support from the Color Computer Community and getting huge inspiration from people like John Strong, John Linville, Nick Marentes, Rick Adams, D. Bruce Moore, Paul Thayer, Steve Bamford and Steve Strowbridge, I thought it was time to do it!
This page will be used for blog posts, designs and code relating to the game development, and eventually a place to download the game when it's completed.
The player will be piloting the USA Emissary - USA standing for the Universal Space Agency. Players will travel around collecting and combining elements to power and fix your ship, create food items for the health, and may even possible meet some friendly or non-friendly aliens along the way - you may need to trade with them, or fight or retreat from them to survive.
