"After the holidays, you might need to find a spot to get away
from everyone in order to just chill out a bit. The RPG (role
playing game) simulation Miller's Quest is perfect for such an
occasion. You'll need to have the Ruby language installed on your
system--not to worry, it's included in most modern
distributions--but other than that, it's simply download,
decompress, and go.
"Miller's Quest is not really interactive once you get started.
Instead, the game takes the starting data you give it and plays
itself. All you have to do is sit back and watch the action as your
character explores, attacks, gets killed, recovers, and continues
without you having to cast a spell or draw a sword or do anything
at all except watch the action unfold. I guess the creators'
description of the game as 'fire-and-forget' is accurate.
