Incredible QBASIC game

Black Annex is the best QBASIC game you’ve ever seen – PCWorld.

What’s the most difficult thing you did in the last year?  Now stop. Before you answer, can it compare to creating a full-fledged indie game—slated to be approved on Steam—created entirely with QBASIC? Probably not. QBASIC is a software interpreter for the BASIC programming language that showed up in 1991, and basic it is.

“It would be amazing for the game development community,” said McDonald when asked about Black Annex’s potential ascension to Steam. “It would show that even old, abandoned tools and the most basic pieces of software can still be put in the hands of someone who wants to create their dream and result in beautiful things happening.”
A couple more fun facts about the game:

• Black Annex requires at least a 2.6GHz processor due to the scope of the project and the unoptimized multi-dimensional arrays.
• The game’s catchy tune is by Abducted by Sharks
• It will support mods (meaning customized missions, levels, etc.)
• The game is a 12000 line .bas (BASIC) file. Yeesh!
