Aventure Game & Interactive Fiction Generator Demo

Version 2.0, by Roger Kenner.
This is an authoring system for CALL (Computer-Aided Language Learning); the demo consists of source code of a small sample game and a DOS interpreter for that code.


A Swedish text adventure by Nils Eng. In spite of it's name, this is actually an adaption of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. It is a very different adventure, trying to reproduce the feeling of reading a book rather than playing a game. It doesn't quite succeed, but it's an interesting attempt, nevertheless. Requires EGA (for minor graphics). QuickBasic source included.
