Swearing in Text Adventures

Profanity Adventures: I used to do this on Zork when I was 13. Me and my buddies would die laughing.

…there was one thing which (as far as I’m aware) has never been celebrated…swearing on text adventures.

I typed in swear words into as many games on the Spectrum 48k as i could find, and below are the ones which understood &mdash which a pleasing amount did… as, let’s face it, the authors knew that most people would try it at some point when they’d gotten frustrated with the distinct lack of fun on offer.

Warning: profanity (obviously). Via MetaFilter.
