Our senior designer at Dexter @realmichaelrado loved the original and thought it was the perfect game to take to Messenger. This version of Drug Wars has everything you loved about the original, right down to the market getting flooded with cheap homemade acid. Hope everyone here has some fun with it!

Thanks for hunting, @bilko! What began as a side hustle has evolved into a full-blown operation. Originally conceived as a project to get to know @rundexter and it’s capabilities, the project became a sort of addiction—pun, I guess, is intended. Drug Wars is a cult-classic—a subversive high-school chemistry class game, teasing the imagination more than anything else, and simultaneously teaching basic economics. Riding on the coattails of chatbot technology, I’m hoping for a mainstream resurgence of the text-based games that were popularized by DOS and IRC chat. There are possibilities for multi-player text-based gaming (MMORPGs, MMOGs or MUDs, and all the other acronyms) and adventure text-based games (read: Oregon Trail) are endless. Thanks @producthunt!
