Colonel Henri Dijon is now on Twitter. Although known to hate socializing, he now has a Twitter account and is ready to answer your questions about his family members, estate, pets (horse, dog and parrot), servants (maid, butler, doctor, attorney) and some other things that players of The Colonel's Bequest adventure game should recognize.
The ColonelsBequest.net website presents the Henri Dijon Twitter Bot. The same commands that Henri recognizes in the Colonel's Bequest game, will be recognized by this bot (at least, most of them) and he will respond with his characteristic not-always-very-friendly remarks.
If you are interested in his opinion of his maid, Fifi. You can tweet him one of the following texts (choose the variant you like best, it does not make a difference):
Note that the bot is smart enough to understand both "Fifi", "maid" and "the maid", just like the optional "Colonel" and "Henri" names. Also, using upper- or lowercase characters does not matter.
Perhaps you heard the rumors of Fifi and Rudy having a fight. If you'd like to inform the Colonel, tweet him one of the following tweets:
If you are only interested in chit-chat, you can let him know by tweeting either:
The Henri Dijon Bot is case insensitive. You can user tweet him both lower- and UPPERCASE (even MiXeD) texts. @Mentions other than @henridijon are ignored, just like #hashtags.
All the forms currently recognized by the bot:
Note that you can refer to the Game Story article for a list of Henri's family and staff members and our walkthrough to get an idea of which name combinations and other subjects Henri will respond to.
If Henri does not understand your tweet, he will answer in the similar way he would have done in the game.
Coming soon: SHOW and GIVE commands
Also coming soon: A status screen on this page to see if the bot is on-line
The bot is in active development (written in Oracle Nashorn) and can be turned off (or crashed, yikes!). So if it does not answer your tweet in a timely manner, please try again later. You use the bot at your own risk and we are not responsible for any problems.
