The following might be of interest to some members.
TAB is my text adventure/interactive fiction maker project in Alpha development and being made with the thinBasic script programming language for Windows 98/2000/Me/XP/Vista platform.
It is not meant to compete with other languages such as INFORM, TADS, HUGO or ALAN.
In fact it has similarities with many old text adventure makers such as STAC, GAC, Quill or PAW… so has a kind of “retro” feel and look about it…
It operates on a condition/action coding rather than INFORM’s natural english language.
Here are some details and links:
TAB consists of two programs:
The TAB Editor: Create, build and test your text adventure.
The TAB Player: Standalone distributable to play your finished adventures.
Current release: Alpha 43 ; 20 Sep 2008.
TAB supercedes my previous IF creator “Creative Adventure Toolkit” which is now no longer being updated/supported.
