Seems like its alot different from qbasic, but I could catch on by looking at the code.  I learn better through lots of examples.  Anyway, it doesn't matter to me what code we use as long as it's FREE.  

Do you want me to tell you the plot of at least the movie?  Or would you rather I didn't (spoilers).

OK, Resident Evil starts out with the main character waking up in a shower and not remembering anything, a special ops team arrives and finds her (the main character; Alice) and another person in the building.  they enter what's called, the Hive, which is a secret underground facility which contains the Umbrella Corporation's (An extremely large entity which supposedly makes products used all over the world) most secret experiments, by an underground train.  Alice begins to remember some things.  She's told that she works for the Umbrella Corporation and was supposed to help keep the entrance to the Hive secret.  The main reason why the special ops team arrived was to disable the Red Queen(The facility's AI) which went homicidal killing all of the workers inside.  Most of the special ops team is killed by Red Queen's defenses.  They eventually shut down Red Queen and the power is lost in the facility. The power is rebooted and all the doors open automatically.  With all the doors open, Zombies and stuff start appearing.  Later on she find that someone had broken a tube containing a new biological weapon, a virus....called the T-Virus, which is causing all of this.  When everyone became infected, Red Queen killed them all to prevent an epidemic.  The workers came back to life due to the virus as zombies.  That's the basic story, if you want, I'll give you more details like the ending.

What I was going to use was Market Basket instead of the Umbrella Corporation (I hate Market Basket) with more or less the same kind of story, maybe with a humorous twist or whatever.  But I'll let you guys decide.

Well, maybe we should go with that then.  Anyone disagree?

Alright let's start with a basic story, so we all know what we want to do.

Well, it may be good to design a system, then base a story on the limitations of the system - so if we can't, for instance, open a door, then if the story requires it, we're sunk (yes, that was a bad example)

but if we devise what you can and cannot do, it would be very helpful

I like to start and see where it goes from there.  That way if a sudden idea comes, you don't have to worry about limitations and such.  Like if you allow yourself only 5 options per room or whatever and you have say, 4 different directions you can go and 4 items to view or pick up....... then what?  I don't know, is that what you mean?  Space is not a problem, I know how to save and load variables if we run out of space on the document we're using.  

Well, anyway, lets start out with at least a basic story, ok?

OK, so maybe we could start the story as you starting out as a programmer for Apple.... or maybe a spy for Apple and your jet is shot down over an island owned by Microsoft....
How does that sound?
