12 years ago I used to write text adventure games using Windows batch files. The longest one was called Funtimes. My knowledge of batch files was limited at the time (pure spaghetti code) so I figured it would be easy enough to get it running on Ubuntu using Python. It works! :) https://github.com/tassaron2/batchfile.py
I definitely have to write some tests before I continue, if I do.
finally an excuse to write "test.bat"
