Is there anything like this out there? Once I get the pieces together, I can use Photoshop to make it a PDF. The deadline is June, so I still have some time.

Just to make myself clear, what I'm trying to do is make an adventure that looks like it was produced back in the 80's on an Apple // computer. As far as the map goes, I was thinking of one made in low res. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I made text mode levels for my PLASMA version of Rogue:
https://github.com/dschmenk/PLASMA/blob/master/src/samplesrc /LEVEL1%23040000

'-' = entrance
'=' = exit
' ' = crevasse
'.' = floor
'#' = wall
'+' = door
'%' = locked door
':' = window (bars)
'<' = water
'>' = water
'*' = wall torch (light)
'&' = food (power up)
'$' = money
',' = key (opens locked door)
'@' = raft (allow to travel over water)
'T' = thief (weak bad guy)
'O' = ogre (stronger bad guy)
'Z' = zombie (really strong bad guy)
'R' = rogue (strongest bad guy)

I think that's all of them

There were a couple of text adventure games one could play while connected to a BBS. I thought the text graphics were pretty good. Someone on facebook posted some screen examples.

And didn't someone here write a 3-d lo-res maze generator that had a doom style walk through?

Don't know if this is what your looking for, but are the best examples I have seen.
