TAB - Retro Text Aventure Maker (Quill/PAW replicant)

#1

Posted a short clip of the Adventure Player loading in some example adventure datafiles.
TAB is a retro text adventure maker project for Windows and is my homage to popular 80’s 8-bit adventure utilities. It operates on very similar principles to STAC, Quill, PAW or GAC.

Update:
This clip shows the tutorial game data entries in the Editor and running in the Player.

I would try it out, if the player and editor were more accessible.

Hi blindHunter,

I would try to help - but not sure I quite understand… Can you be a little more explicit as to what you did not like or had problems with?
Thanks.

well, it’s a RPM (Read Poster’s Mind) :wink: but I guess that mr. “Blindhunter” refers to a Linux/mac version or that your IF compiler is uploaded in the IF Archive…

Best regards from Italy,

Whoops. I use a screen reader to use a computer and to access the internet.
The particular screen reader I use, NVDA (nonvisual desktop access) does not work with the TAB player or editor.
For example, most of the edit boxes and buttons are unlabeled, so I can’t tell what they do. If you want to test out TAB with NVDA, you can download it from www.nvaccess.org.
