This Real-Time Game from Adventure Time’s Creator Is the Best Thing on Twitter in Years

Tweet your Zork-like commands to Quest Attack

Just as the doubters were writing Twitter's obituary, animator and Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward had to go and show that the network can still have a few fun surprises after all.

On Tuesday, Ward tweeted a rough sketch of a prison cell, with this comment: "You wake up in a dungeon cell. What do you do?"

Fans who played along were rewarded with fun and laughably literal results to their suggested actions, such as "talk to the guard" or "kiss rat." Ward found time to keep the game going today, changing the name on his account to Quest Attack.

For children of the '80s, it's a fun flashback to early adventure games like Zork and its graphical successors like King's Quest, all of which required you to carefully type out each command.

Check out the first two days of Quest Attack below, then be sure to follow Ward on Twitter to stay up to date.
