Age of Fable Is a Fun Illustrated Text-Based Browser Game

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 1st, 2011

If you’re a fan of old text-based games like MUDs and choose-your-own-adventure style books, Age of Fable is an illustrated text-based game you can play right in your browser.

Fire up the site and roll a character (or pick a randomly generated one to take for a spin) and you’re off in the world of Fable. It’s based off of the “gamebook” genre popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s; a type of choose-your-own-adventure style that had additional rules and player stats. You can play Age of Fable for free and even download the source code to create your own gamebook. Hit up the link below to take it for a spin and relive some gamebook awesomeness.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
