[Coco] CoCo Game "Construction Sets"

I think the idea of an adventure designed is good, since I think I  
could quickly write one once I'm set back up.  But, mine would be a  
basic text game with pictures of the locations -- basing it on what I  
did with the CoCoFest 1992 "adventure" we put out wayback when.  I  
always did want to go on and make a full game out of it.

I like the idea of these things since it would let us, say, make a  
"Mary Chased by Tornados" novelty game, or a special CoCoFest  
souvenir game each year.  There are endless "running, jumping,  
climbing" games that we still love to this day, but have most of the  
same elements -- just different music, levels, and characters.

Joel Hegberg did that one, and he later was part of Sub-Etha Software  
with me.  I never played with it, and I don't think we ever sold it  
(I forget who did; I met Joel at their booth at the 1990 Atlanta  
CoCoFest and the rest, as they say, is history).  But, it's a great  
idea to look at what is there.  Perhaps that could be taken as a  
basis and extend it using modern techniques we now know.
