SCREEN SHOTS Talk about Adventure Studio here
This is simple build your own TEXT adventure tool. Great class exercise for teaching game design basics!
Text adventures were among the first computer games created. Due to the limited memory and graphical nature of early computers, text was the only viable option. Early computer game players were treated to text based games that used the graphic capabilities of the best processor out there, your mind's eye!
Many today fondly remember those early gaming experiences and this tool allows them (or others interested in learning what it was like) to re-visit this experience. This software is also a good entry-level way to experiment with game design. Even though the technology is limited to text, it is a good way to learn how to make an enjoyable game by being creative with very limited resources.
You have two main applications:
Studuo.exe - allows you to design create adventure '.as' files.
AdventurePlayer - allows you to play a '.as' file as a text based game.
