Textured Role Playing Games, or RPGs as they are more popularly known, are a genre of video game which focuses on the act of interacting with text-based characters. Text messages are used to provide narration and character descriptions. Typically, you play the role of a character who is stranded on a mysterious planet after being ejected from an aircraft. You will have to piece together clues and investigate the strange world around you in order to survive.

Texted based games can have their pros and cons. Text games tend to have a limited amount of content compared to games that utilize voice acting and moving images. Voice acting can become monotonous for some players and the graphics can get repetitive. With regards to the limited amount of content available, this often leads to less frequent updates. In most cases, updates are only available if the original release has not yet been sold.

An Overview

Text games often have difficulty options. These difficulties increase as you progress through the game. There are many titles available that allow the player to increase the difficulty as they choose. Often this is done by unlocking new abilities for the character. The most common difficulty option available is “kill everything and save only the baby”.

Some text games require that the player to perform actions in real life. Such actions can include purchasing real estate, hiring employees and negotiating with other countries. Sometimes you may also need to make major decisions regarding your business, like changing the overall layout or the product line. Sometimes you can’t make a decision and your character must do so.

When you are playing a text game, you will probably be playing with a single character. Most RPGs involve a multi-character narrative. However, a lot of the RPGs that feature text interactions focus on a single character. This can be problematic for players who prefer a more involved game experience.
