The Making of

Murkon's Refuge

Murkon's Refuge was and is a labor of love for me. In 1995, I completed an ASCII-based version that ran on UNIX systems. At the time, it was the most complex and satisfying programming project I had ever undertaken. In 2002, this web-based port of it was completed and released. The game, both its original incarnation and this latest one, ranks among my proudest creative and programming accomplishments. The following loosely-connected collection of pages expounds on both the creative and technical sides of the making of Murkon's Refuge -- both the original game and the web version.
