ADRIFT Generator/Runner is a two-part application to allow you to create and play Text Adventures in Windows. Adventures are built up by adding rooms, objects, tasks, events, and characters. All you have to do is type in the descriptions, then select how it all interacts from pull down menus and lists. ADRIFT Runner is the application that takes the files created with Generator and interprets them as an adventure. Runner attempts to recreate the traditional adventure environment as introduced to computers when adventures first came out, but it also supplies a real-time map, optional control panel (to use the mouse instead of keys), general point-n-click, color customizing, automatic text completion, and high score table.
