WMC_e2 Workshop: “Inform 7”: text based interactive fiction

Inform 7 Workshop | April 2007 | Dr. Hector Rodriguez

Would you like to learn how to write your own text adventure game? How about writing an interactive fiction? Inform 7 is a new programming language designed specifically for adventure games and interactive literature. It is very easy for non-programmers to learn, since it uses natural English sentences. After only a few hours of training, you can begin to write your own game or story. You can design complex locations and objects, even characters who react independently to the decisions of the player.

The basics of Inform 7 will be introduced in a gradual manner. This workshop is designed mainly for friends with little or no programming experience. Those who are afraid of programming are especially welcome.
