So I just discovered Inform7, Lectrote and all these cool creative writing and fiction outlets yesterday evening before bed. This is absolutely amazing!!!
I have a one really important question. I dowloaded Lectrote for MacOs Catalina and downloaded a sample game and opened it up.
Eveything seems to be running good.
However. I grew up in the early 90’s and am familiar with some text based games like this which were developed by Sierra with animated graphics. I started hammering away the usual commands such as take, talk to, etc. I was surprised that the game kept prompting me that these were not recognised commands…
So I am curious as a programmer or designer, which I intend to eventually take a crack at, … in Inform7 would I be the one building the verb commands that the interpreter will recognize? Or is this something that is already built into the interpreters?
Thanks for the help guys.
