ADRIFT allows you to write text adventure games using a GUI interface,
rather than writing text files, which you'd do for languages like TADS or
Inform. It uses a fill in the blank approach, in that you can choose a room,
character, task, etc. then you'd fill in various fields for, as an example,
a room's description, where to go, etc. I'm currently trying version 4.00,
which is shareware. You can add sounds or music to the games, but so far I
haven't figured out how to do that yet. I did, however, find two buttons for
adding pictures in one of the sections (why there are two I'm not exactly
sure at the moment.) It's not too bad, as far as setting up a basic room or
character goes, but there are controls that I can't figure out. If you want
to try it, you can download the latest version at www.adrift.org.uk/.
Hope this helps.
