• Little Shop of Horrors for C*Base BBS

    From Tristan Miller@3:770/3 to All on Tue Jun 7 20:22:32 2022
    Dear all,

    The C*Base BBS software for the C64 supported add-on modules (commonly
    called "doors" on DOS BBSes). One such module was a multiplayer game
    called Little Shop of Horrors. Like the stage and film musicals of the
    same name, the game featured a man-eating plant; the player's job was to
    grow his or her plant by providing it with sufficient amounts of meat
    and blood. Players would log into the game once per day to feed their
    plants, and could interact (albeit not in real time) with other players,
    such as by sending their plant to attack those owned by other players.

    The game was lots of fun and had fantastic full-colour, full-screen
    PETSCII graphics.

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any information on the Web about
    this game. Can anyone help by identifying the author, or maybe finding a
    copy of the game itself? I believe it was freely distributable, at least
    to C*Base licensees, so there might not be any copyright issues in
    posting it on the Web. (C*Base itself has since been released under the
    terms of the GNU General Public License, so anyone is free to obtain a
