Hi.

 

Do you mean actual D&D that I talked about playing nowadays?

If you are referring to the MUDs (multi-user dungeons), I don’t really now anything about what’s around nowadays, but I’m sure some people still play them. Maybe do a search around for mud clients and “multi-user dungeons” and you may find some interesting stuff. You can either log in with a client or through telnet. This is way old-school internet.

As for dungeons and dragons – it’s not software at all. Throught eh pandemic my friends and I got together on discord and google meets and played it. It’s all brain, paper/notepad, dice (real or computerised), roleplay and some basic guide books. I am fortunate to have two really good dungeonmasters, and one day may even take a stab at it myself. It’s a pretty enw hobby for me but a lot of fun if you get the right group of people together.

Ah, yes, Quentin C’s gameroom – I believe I downloaded that on my old pC, but, as there was never anyone around to play with, I never used it. I guess if I had more friends in the so-called community; I might go on either of those sites more often, but whenever I logged into RS recently it was also a bit of a ghost town.

So I just play dungeons and dragons online now. Haha

There’s also Quinton sees playroom, which is a web-based set of games kind of like RS, and it also has a client like RS does. They are pretty awesome, although the interface is a bit intense.

Hello Mark.

 

What sort of games are you looking into?

Obviously as JAWS is a text screen-reader you will not have much luck with graphical games (though I understand you can use OCR for some things)…I have heard f a few modern games with some accessibility-related features, but I don’t know much about that and, actually I suspect they are not really JAWS-related/won’t work with your screen-reader and are actually audio feedback from the games themselves.

Of course you can always try text adventures, card games, word games, etc.

There is rs-games, a site where there are several card and-board-game type things you can play with others. I haven’t used it in a while, but if you can get a party together to play with, it can be fairly cool.

I personally am a fan of interactive fiction type games which can be found on websites and downlaoded from placesl ike the Interactive Fiction archive (you need interpreter programmes for most of these).

I haven’t played any in years, but there are also Multi-User Dungeons (MUDs), which are set up online and accessed through various clients (or even just a telnet terminal. They are multi-player and they work a lot like dungeons and dragons, if you are familiar with that, except all the dice-rolling and such happens behind the scenes.

Hmm…well, software never really goes away entirely, it just fades away. I wouldn’t’ be surprised if these were on the web somewhere, and they may well work with Windows 10, possibly with some small amount of tweaking.

How niche are these games?

A good place for old software is:

I know this is a thread where someone else asked about games originally, but I also have a question. I am wondering if there is a way to get hold of some of the old windows vista and XP games. There are two that I am looking for mainly. One of them is the 3-D pinball from windows XP, and the other one is called Purble place. It’s a matching game that was from Windows Vista, and I love it!
