Augmented Fourth: 20th Anniversary Day

Twenty years ago today, on April 1, 2000, I released my text adventure game, Augmented Fourth. After an awful trumpet audition before King Goosen of Papoosen, you're cast into Orchestra Pit where you discover a peculiar community living in a dormant volcano.

Since everyone loves round-number anniversaries, I have released an updated version of the game today:

  • Updated cover art.
  • Added a 20th Anniversary Retrospective to the HELP system.
  • Updated one puzzle to reduce the amount of unnecessary NPC cruelty required to win.
  • Adjusted various room exits for better map geometry.
  • Added a few more gentle hints to various obtuse puzzles.
  • Fixed text parser disambiguation issues and minor bugs reported by recent players.
  • Cleaned up source code formatting.

You can sample the game online with Parchment. If you want to be able to save your progress, you'll need to download the game file and an interpreter to your computer.

Hope you enjoy it during your self-quarantine doldrums!
