Through the Grapevine

Writing adventures on the IIGS

Actually, years and years ago I tried to write a game using Eamon, but it wasn't my idea of a great time. :)

I've used TADS on MS-DOS, and I can use that quite nicely, but there's no IIGS version.

One of the other adventure design languages has been ported, but I don't like it much.

I'm trying to compile Inform, which lets you create Infocom-format adventures that can be played by Big Red's Lost Treasures of Infocom package, but have run into some problems getting it to compile (ORCA/C is running out of memory while building one of the files — I need to split it up :).

Another reason I haven't looked at Eamon again is that I read somewhere that a new version of Eamon (v7.0?) would be out soon, but I haven't seen it yet.
