"Text Zedventure is set up to be a charitable game. Affordably priced at just 80 Microsoft Points ($1.00), all profits between now and May 31, 2010 will be donated straight to the animal conservation charity “Save the Rhino” (registered charity 1035072). After May 31, 25% of sales will still go to the charity."

It is for charity so you can feel good knowing your purchase will go to a good cause.

Yeah that's a good point.I know people will joke around about it "xbox text adventure,omg the future" and all that.But everyone should buy it at that price and experience a bit of gamings history,and help save the Rhino.

I loved text-based games as a kid. My favorite was The Labyrinth on the Commodore 64 based on the movie of the same name by LucasArts, Jim Henson, starring David Bowie. You had control to do some hilarious things, such as eating things you find in your pocket. Eat + Movie Ticket = "You force yourself to eat your movie ticket. It tastes surprisingly good."

Choose-your-own-adventure books were the same deal. The choices were crucial, with everything have a big impact on the story. I would always re-read to see what other options I could have taken.

For the 360, it's nice to see a game that values the power of the imagination. I don't always need stellar graphics to tell me what I should be seeing. That, and you can't complain about the price. Even avatar clothing items don't come this cheap.

Icrontic will likely be reviewing this game soon, so stay tuned.

This reminds me of the AVGN video, where James plays a text-based Vampire game on the Vic-20.
