oshs - Old School Hack & Slash - is my computer game, written to scratch the gaming itch for people who enjoyed early SSI and Nintendo RPGs.
This is my first "advanced" release, dividing race from class, and includes random quest generation. Along with the six hand-written quests are another 35 randomly-generated ones, providing a great deal of replayability.
The game is written in Java (http://java.com/en
), and will run fine on Windows or Linux. If Java is installed properly on your system, you should be able to simply unzip the jar file and double-click to run it. The other way is to type "java -jar oshs8.jar" in a command prompt window.
