Interactive fiction / text adventures / point and click adventures in Esperanto?

I saw user SamirShaker describe how he played point and click adventure games in German when learning German (https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13525670$comment_id=13561071) and think this is a really good idea. Have any of you played adventure games in Esperanto? I want to complete the Duolingo course before trying that, but would love to give it a go afterwards.

It looks as if there is a text adventure game in Esperanto called " La Insulo Texel" (http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=ijr351ccjmokhjn5) , another one called "Fajfeta sur la Luno" (translation of a game called "Squeaky on the Moon", http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=y7t917n50bqw1dt4), possibly a game (RPG?) called Cantr II (https://cantr.net) but my Esperanto is not good enough to read the description so I'm not sure, and an Esperanto version of a graphic adventure game called Maniac Mansion (https://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maniac_Mansion), though the download link I found didn't work for me as my virus software said the download was attempting to install unauthorised software. There's a YouTube video of Maniac Mansion in Esperanto at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7ENMae4j5s. I also found an Esperanto version of a beginner's guide to interactive fiction / text adventures at http://webhome.idirect.com/~dswxyz/eo/bgtif-eo.html.

Would love to know if anyone has played any of these and what they are like.

That looks splendid - thank you very much for the link.

It's not quite "point and click" but Minecraft has Esperanto as one of its languages.
