It Came from the Grave is a pick-up-and-play horror game by Jeffrey Daniels.  It is made entirely in BASIC for the unexpanded VIC 20.  Use the keyboard or joystick to escape the graveyard.  

Control with  WASD keys or a JOYSTICK  (ARROW keys in emulation).  I recommend using a real Vic 20 or VICE emulator in NTSC mode (open the prg file in xvic.exe program).

A real C64 port would be nice.

Hi, long time no see. 

I still remember this interesting game. By the way, I discover a quite special game contest.  You may be able to make a very creative game for the contest. Yes,  I look forward to it.

A truly nice game very well programmed, really well optimized. On my C64 maxi in Vic-20 mode, even in Pal 50 the title remains fast. A very good example of what can be done in basic language.

Hello! There are a lot of modern BASIC dialects which are suitable for game development. I listed them here:
