My name is Thomas Dettbarn, and I am the author of "dMagnetic- A Magnetic Scrolls Interpreter". Its homepage can be found at, and it can be used to play classic text adventures, such as "The Pawn", "The Guild of Thieves", "Jinxter", "Corruption", "Myth", "Fish!" and "Wonderland". It is to Magnetic Scrolls what frotz is to Infocom.

Graphics are being rendered in glorious ANSI Art, and when I wrote it, I tried to create the most portable code possible. Thus, I think, it would be a very good fit for NetBSD.

I took the liberty of creating an inkling of a pkgsrc, you can find it on my github:

There is one issue, the installation. For some reason, none of the files I created seem to end up in the package. Since I am not an experienced NetBSD user, I would be needing a little bit of help with that.

Please have a look, and tell me if it has a chance of becoming part of your pkgsrc collection. 

git clone
cp -r NetBSD/games/dmagnetic /usr/pkgsrc/games
cd /usr/pkgsrc/games/dmagnetic
make install
