The Text Adventure

One of the few things anyone has done with the WP database recently:

https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/07/ ... adventure/

Davis says he put Wikipedia: The Text Adventure out without building more defined content, like quests or significant easter eggs (though he admits he snuck a few jokes in). He doesn't seem driven to add anything major because, in initial tests, people didn't need the prodding. "It seems like people are having enough fun making their own quests—trying to get home from far-flung corners of their home town, walking between two landmarks in different cities, or collecting an inventory of particular treasures or oddities," Davis tells Ars.

Hopefully some of them will see how many bad articles and how much incompetent writing there is......

It got some attention in SW developer's circles
