A downloadable Interactive Fiction

"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.

Language: English Version Only

There is a "text-only" version or three text/graphic versions for download from the TAB website at: http://tab.thinbasic.com/

All versions allow background music, samples and sfx to be added to games in .mp3, .wav, .ogg, aiff, or .mod format.

The three graphics versions accept JPG, GIF, PNG or BMP images and video clips in WMV (windows media file format)
