I'm working on a text game engine in Python! It is a lot of work and I will likely be working on it for another decade lol.
I find it a really rewarding side project, mostly because I really enjoy trying to figure out weird things that users might want to implement in a text-based game and then figuring out how to make my engine able to accommodate that. That being said, if your main goal is just writing a text adventure and not the engine, you'll probably get more mileage out of just using Inform7 :)
Do you renpy?
Great looking project! I'm building an engine in JS and I'm always interested to see people's takes on structuring such a thing.
