Email the Pork Team “-Command is invalid!”

Could you help me play pork?

Everything i type results in “-Command is invalid”
i don’t know who command is, or why he is a cripple, or why that his disability is so important.

i’ve tried using underscores as spaces.
i’ve tried typing nothing more than a single word. “splash”

What am i missing?

Dear Shmo,

When you type into the console and it returns “Command is invalid” it means that you have typed in an unsupported command or in other words, that the console doesn’t understand (or wasn’t programmed to understand) the word or phrase you used. If you look in the ‘read me’ you can find a full list of supported commands and there results. Also note that all objects are case and space sensitive.

If you’re interested in using Pork script for creating your own text-based adventure, I’m sorry to say that the language is no longer in development. However, a new language with many more command options and support for creating your own commands is currently in development by Pork’s original developer. You can find the new release on Github: https://github.com/Valdez42/Satay.

Thank you again for emailing the Pork Team and if you have anymore questions don’t hesitate to email again or comment on our blog: https://porkadventures.wordpress.com/

Game on!

The Pork Story… (Don’t worry it has a happy ending)

Catherine's Weblog

So hopefully if you’re reading this you’ve played Pork… well no that isn’t right let me start again. So hopefully if you’ve played Pork you’re reading this. There that’s more like it. I want to get started by saying goodbye – to Pork that is not to you, I’d love to say “Hello!” and “Welcome back!” to you. Ahem… Goodbye Pork we had a good run ‘ol buddy ‘ol pal.

Well now that that’s over I should probably offer an explanation. As most of (all) the readers of the Pork blog should know Andy Brennan is the one who started Pork by making Pork Script an engine that allows the user to created text-based adventure games. This started in our sophomore year of highschool  Pork script was written in C++ by the way (this is important later in the story.) Our friend TJ is actually the one who wrote the game known as Pork. I did artwork and started the Pork blog and helped And market the game…

Design Sketch

I know it’s been awhile! A lot has been getting done around here (even though it might not look it!) Here is a quick sketch of a design concept I had for the Pork Version 2 icon! Note: it is a poorly taken cell phone photo with the contrast amped up, it is also sideways… The pork monster is laying back (on his back!) and holding that big juicy porkchop above him about to eat it 🙂

Hello!

Hello everyone! Just a quick update to apologize for falling off the end of the Earth; it was an amazing trip down but a hell of a clime back up 🙂 As for a newer and shinier chrome plated, laser engraved, hand painted version of Pork all rapped up in brown paper and tied together with twine — you’ll have to wait a little longer. Just know that is in production. Andy would give you a more technical explanation but is too busy to be bothered… So I had to give a sugar coated one! Again sorry for the utter lack of updates I will have to start being more entertaining or bug the others a lot more…

Yours Truly,

Cat
