BLOWING THE LID OFF OMEGLE AND CALTROPS by Bananadine 05/17/2010, 10:23pm PDT
I ran through most of the .ulx and .blb games in the IF Archive. (The interpreter I've hacked doesn't seem to handle other types well.) That TV game made it pretty clear what would happen, but this was so much easier than making an appropriate game from scratch that I went ahead with it anyway:

Stranger: i certainly didn't mean anything so crass.

[long pause]

You: You had your chance

That was the greatest success of the night. :(

You: You'd better hurry. Gandalf is almost finished.
You: You die.

How hard is it to type ANYTHING! For Omegle users, it is pretty hard. :(

You: You are locked in a cell.
You: This in and of itself is not a new thing: spending a little time behind bars every now and again is one of the hazards of the job. But up until now it's been for little 50-crown and 100-crown jobs out in the countryside, and you've ended up in decrepit little gaols that managed to hold you for, what, a minute? Possibly two? This, though, this is different. You thought you'd try one last job, land one big score: five thousand crowns. And now you're the newest resident of King Tyrak II's deepest, darkest dungeon. Scream all you like: no one will be coming to rescue you. No one will even be coming to feed you. If you ever want to see the sun again, you will have to pull off an audacious escape -- and soon.
You: Cell
You: It's so dim down here that you can barely make out your surroundings, the only light provided by a few flickering torches (which are actually OUTSIDE the cell -- they must've heard about how you escaped the last time you were in a situation like this.) The cell is absolutely barren, the windowless stone walls are thick and unyielding, and the guard visible through the barred window in the equally thick stone door glowers at you fiercely. He doesn't even appear to be drunk. Wow. You've never actually seen a sober guard before.
Stranger: what are talking about?
You: [That verb is not needed to complete LOCK & KEY.]
Stranger: you sucks
You: [That verb is not needed to complete LOCK & KEY.]

The room didn't even get described. Is this schtick old yet? :(

I forget exactly but I think this was that same game, with the introduction used up on the previous Stranger:

Stranger: This is Captain James Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise... who is this?
You: That's not a verb I recognise.
Stranger: there's no verd in that sentence
You: That's not a verb I recognise.
Stranger: *verb
You: That's not a verb I recognise.
Stranger: well, if that's all there is to this conversation
You: You seem to want to talk to someone, but I can't see whom.
Stranger: You, perhaps?
You: You seem to want to talk to someone, but I can't see whom.
Stranger: I think you're double posting
You: I only understood you as far as wanting to inventory.
Stranger: Well, what is there as far as inventory?
You: You seem to want to talk to someone, but I can't see whom.
Stranger: Shit. There's an advancing alien ship of some sort.... Kirk out.
You: Real adventurers do not use such language.
You: That's not a verb I recognise.

This happened a few times, with Zork. Not even the decency to tell me to fuck off! "One of those Zork spammers," they seem to be thinking. :(

And that brings us up to the present. (Okay not really I disconnected the spammer.)


SCALA VERDICT: It seems like it's probably awesome and it solves most of the problems I've had with Java but the editors for it suck so right now it's only good for people who can stand programming without a good editor (i.e.: slowly or poorly).
