Stage of Development: Closed.
Architecture: Marlinspike / Inform 6 (interactive fiction).
Overview: Set in an alternate 1923, the passengers of a trans-Atlantic Zeppelin flight wake to find the crew slain and something loose in the airship above them.
To play the game:
The easiest option is to click the box to the right and start the game from your browser using Java's Web Start technology. This will run the game using a version of the Zag interpreter. If you have questions about the resulting security query from Java, see:
On the other hand, you can download only the game file: Demeter.ulx.
But you will then need to download and install your favorite Glulx interpreter to play the game. (My personal favorite is Gargoyle.)
Demeter is a prototype game to demonstrate and evaluate the Marlinspike drama manager as part of my PhD dissertation. It is a fairly simple horror story, though it still took 2 years to develop.
More information about how Demeter works is available on the Marlinspike page. The Inform source code is also available there.
