Program an Adventure Game in Java

Regular readers will know that I am passionately keen on retro-style adventure games. Not only are they great fun to play but they are also great fun to program. Don't be fooled into thinking that an adventure game is a trivial program to write, however. It isn't. It requires you to use a very broad range of programming techniques: creating class hierarchies, overriding and overloading methods, generic lists, serialization to save and load networks of mixed data types. And much more.

I've recently started a YouTube series on programming games in Java. This complements my book, 'The Little Book Of Adventure Game Programming' which uses C# as the primary language.

Anyway, here's the latest video.
