Stumbled upon Grendel’s Cave, a medieval adventure game, and thought it deserved a mention. The browser-based game is based on Beowulf and Grendel and has elements of Norse mythology, Dark Age, and Viking adventure.
Playing the game is free. If your thane dies, you can create another for free or pay 50 cents to resurrect your thane for one life. Obviously, playing the game creates an account to track your progress, so be aware of that before you click the Quickstart button.
There’s also a Grendel’s Cave Facebook App where you can see some of the graphics and privacy options. The App sees only your Basic info and you can limit who sees posts made by the game on your timeline.
A few days ago the site had a Halloween challenge that was mentioned on a reputable blog elsewhere. That’s how I found it. I can’t review the site from experience. Long ago, I loved Roberta Williams’ King’s Quest and other Sierra adventure games. They were more like puzzles than tests of skill, advanced for their time, and a lot of fun. I think these were the only games I didn’t suck at playing, so I eventually moved on to making websites, which is another adventure altogether.
