Additional Info

As the parser, you’ll take on the role of a computer game with a limited vocabulary. One by one, the players will give you commands like GO NORTH, LIGHT LAMP or GET SWORD, which you’ll follow to the best of your ability. There’s no limit to the number of people that can play and no limit to the fun you’ll have. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to unplug from your computer and plug into Parsely!

Parsely was written and designed by Jared A. Sorensen and features a foreword by Peter Adkison, layout by Radek Drosdalski and Luke Crane and illustrations from Jordan Worley, Rebekie Bennington, Manning L. Krull, Alice K. Hansmann, Ariel ZB, Lukas Wong-Achorn, Todd James, “Calamity” Jon Morris, Keith Senkowski, Alexey Andreyev and Sam Araya.
