If you're a fan of old school text adventures and Hawk The Slayer then today is your lucky day.
Jonathan Himes has launched Hawk The Hunter, an unofficial sequel to the classic sword-and-sorcery flick from 1980, and inspired by the failed attempt to Kickstart a cinematic sequel.
On textadventures.co.uk, Jonathan describes his game as:
"An homage to the sword & sorcery classic Hawk the Slayer, a 1980 film by Terry Marcel and Harry Robertson, and inspired by the 2015 kickstarter campaign to produce a sequel.This is probably the closest we'll get to a Hawk The Slayer RPG, so enjoy it while you can - just in case 'cease and desist' letters start flying faster than Crow's arrows from the owners of the IP.
This work of interactive fan fiction has taken over a year to complete, working fiendishly between intense semesters of teaching college English classes.
Almost forty years after first laying eyes on Hawk, I have fulfilled a dream of creating an RPG based on it, using only words to fire the imagination.
As Tolkien said, works of literary fantasy proceed not from ready-made pictures but rather "from mind to mind" with well-chosen words; a text adventure therefore seems an appropriate medium for the Bearer of the Mindsword."
