The Most Lamentable and Excellent Text Adventure of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark

Who really killed Hamlet’s dad? What does King Richard III want with a horse anyway? And where did the gravedigger get that gorgeous pink dress? Avenge your father, defeat your evil uncle and ascend the throne of Denmark in William Shakespeare’s long undiscovered text adventure. —Robin JohnsonThe Most Lamentable and Excellent Text Adventure of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (Online Residence of Robin Johnson)

Very nice, Scott-Adamsesque implementation of Hamlet as a text adventure. Doesn’t shoot nearly as high as Graham Nelson’s verson of The Tempest (game | my review) but the JavaScript interface looks very smooth. I’ve got a long-dormant work-in-progress that features a character with a speech impediment, so I was amused to see Johnson’s treament of Ophelia.
