“From Here to Eternity” launches today

From Here To Eternity

Shooter Jennings’ new BBS door game, “From Here to Eternity” officially launches today, Sept. 28, 2015.

As Jennings told me in our interview, he is offering 1 Bitcoin (approximately $240) as a prize to the “the first player to pass through The Coil (the final gate) with all 20 artifacts.”

The game will last for 30 days, or until someone wins.

You can access Bit Sunrise BBS and play the game over the web using a browser-based client at bitsunrise.com.

If you want a more authentic experience, then fire up a terminal program like SyncTerm, and telnet to bitsunrise.com.

And don’t forget to read my interview with Shooter. We talked about BBSing, retrocomputing, and how writing “From Here to Eternity” helped him after the loss of a close friend.

Shooter Jennings, creator of “From Here to Eternity”

Not many folks are developing new BBS door games these days. But one of the few is Shooter Jennings, who is currently beta testing his game, “From Here to Eternity” on his BBS, Bit Sunrise (Web, Telnet). Make sure you visit his board and try the game!

Jennings is best known for his musical career. The only son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter began his musical career with the rock band Stargunn in 2001, then released his first solo record, “Put the ‘O’ Back in Country” in 2005.

As he explains during our discussion, Jennings worked with computers from a young age. Later in life, he even developed a point-and-click adventure game in Flash to accompany his album ‘Black Ribbons.’
