What is this, Sheepy?
The Fathersheep has been incredibly patient and supportive this last year, so I wanted to make him a tiny 'adventure card' to say 'thank you' :)
While making it, I figured I could make multiple versions so that other people could pick the 'card' with the most appropriate message.
So this is for you and your dad. It has son/daughter versions, different message types (like you get in a card, right?) and I'll be adding the source project so you can edit it to better fit your needs!
The game itself is really simple and tiny. It's supposed to be like an interactive card or something.
You'll need a spectrum emulator to be able to play these!
I've divided the files into (d) and (s) variants. D = from a daughter, S = from a son.
There are four messages in each son/daughter zip file (.tap download 1-4)
Message 1: Thank you. For everything.
Message 2: I'm grateful for you, Dad, and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to pay you back for all that you've done for me.
Message 3: I'm so lucky to have you in my life, Dad
Message 4: Thanks for being the coolest Dad on the block!
I hope that makes sense!
I've also attached the original project file: fathersday2021_template.xml
You will need a copy of Lantern to open it up, which you can get for free here.
You'll be able to edit all sorts, really, so have a look if you'd like to further personalise the card!
If your Dad gets stuck, the solution to the game (SPOILERS) can be seen in the tiny text below:
Take drink, drink drink, take key, unlock drawer, look in drawer, take tape, put tape in VCR, play tape
And finally, for those whose Fathers aren't with them anymore. I'm sorry. You have lived my greatest fear, and I know one day I'll share that awful sense of loss :(
For now, all I can offer are my sincere sympathies and the hope that I've not made anyone feel worse with this.
