Thunderdome II


If you enjoy games like Fallout you may like Thunderdome II, a text-based RPG game that has been online since 1994.Often likened to Wasteland, the Commodore 64 prequel to "Fallout", Tdome offers a dark, and often humorous perspective on a futuristic world set sometime after a nuclear holocaust. Human society, now composed of roughly governed gangs, must now contend with aliens and mutated creatures for control. The game boasts over 13k rooms, and players can choose between 12 different classes, and are allowed to log on 3 seperate characters simultaneously.

Guns (dozens are available), biological implants and magic are available, offering alternative methods for a character in a life filled to the brim with danger and adventure. Inexperienced players soon learn that for survival chances may be increased by joining one of Tdome's many gangs that offer a variety of advantages.

The homepage for Thunderdome is here. To connect, either use a telnet client or one of the Mud clients offered in the links page, such as AL client, zMud or WinTin++.

If you are the sort that enjoys a game that walks on the wild side, come seek the challenge of survival in a world gone mad. There should be plenty of room to accommodate you..

  17. i agree, i dont like text based games.
    i recently finished fallout new vegas. it was too short.
    good quality, long, and in depth games are hard to come by nowadays.
    morrowind would definately be one of the greatest rpg games of all time.
