Amazing Text Fun Game Engine - fiction game engine
Version: 1.1Do you fondly recall hours upon hours of Zork or Adventure in Humongous Cave? Does hearing the word "Grue" result in a welling up of emotion (mostly frustration)? Can you run down the proper action sequence for all of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy from memory?

In fact, the programming team at ATF has decided that it's time for "interactive fiction" to get a much-needed shot in the arm. Games today are too full of imagery, animation, and action.

What's a game engine, you ask? Well it's interpreter for a game: A game developer writes a game with certain rules and behaviors, and the game engine decodes that game and presents it to you, the player! No more pictures, no more motion; just you, your keyboard, and the game.
Amazing Text Fun Game Engine is an interactive fiction game engine.
