TAB - Thinbasic Adventure Builder
A downloadable tool
"Thinbasic Adventure Builder" (aka T.A.B.) is my *free* parser driven offline text adventure; interactive fiction creator for PC Windows XP and above platform. (32/64 bit)
It's a personal project which I am sharing with the Interactive Fiction community at large.
TAB operates on very similar principles to popular 8-bit 80's retro text adventure creator programs like QUILL, PAW or GAC.
It consists of a database an interpreter and a parser.
TAB Editor - construct your adventure.
TAB Player - test and play your adventure.
Finished games can easily be made into a standalone executable application enabling players to download and play a created game offline without needing to own the TAB program itself.
