OVERVIEW OF THE ADVENTURE GAME TOOLKIT:

The ADVENTURE GAME TOOLKIT (AGT) lets you design/write your own high-quality
text adventure games. Once created, these adventure games can be shared with
others -- even if they do not have a copy of the AGT themselves.

AGT has a number of features that make it a very comprehensive adventure game
creation product. Some of these key features are:

* "Look and feel" of Infocom adventure games with similar screen layout
and standard vocabulary and routines.

* Large standard vocabulary with potential to define many more words
unique to your gam. Typical games can have a vocabulary of 500 words
or more.

* Sophisticated parser that can understand (1) complex input commands
including pronouns (IT, HIM, HER, THEM, MY and ITS), and (2) compound
commands separated by AND or THEN or punctuation symbols, and (3)
commands addressed to characters within the game. Here are a few
examples of commands AGT can handle with ease:

GET THE FLASH LIGHT AND THEN SWITCH IT ON
PUT ON THE CLOAK, THEN EXAMINE IT; READ ITS LABEL
PLACE THE GREEN ROCK AND THE SMALL PEBBLE BEHIND THE TREE
ENTER THE HOUSE; GET ALL; EXIT; SOUTH; SOUTH THEN DOWN
SULU, SET A COURSE FOR ALPHA 14
SCOTTY, BEAM DOWN A TRICORDER AND THE QWERTY MODULE
DROP THE FOOD, THE KEY AND THE BOTTLE THEN UNLOCK THE DOOR WITH
THE BRASS KEY AND THEN LEAVE

* Function and cursor keys predefined to input frequently used commands
and move directions.

* SCRIPT and UNSCRIPT commands to echo game output to printer.

* Versions for IBM, Macintosh, Atari ST and Amiga. Games created on
one of these computers can be played on all of the others without
modifications to the game.


WHAT THE REVIEWERS HAVE SAID ABOUT THE ADVENTURE GAME TOOLKIT

"Using the Adventure Game Toolkit, anyone with an ounce of
imagination can create a text adventure game ... similar in layout
and sophistication to those made by Infocom and other commercial
developers." -- Donald B. Trivette (PC Magazine)

"The Adventure Game Toolkit (AGT) acts as a compiler which allows
for creating remarkably complex and sophisticated games in a fairly
simple way .... AGT's parser reminds me of Infocom's." -- Scorpia
(Computer Gaming World)

"If you have ever wondered what it is like to create your own
adventure games, but didn't have the programming knowledge to do it,
this product is for you .... The process is easy ... and you'll have
hours of fun doing it." -- Resul DeMaria (Public Domain Software &
Shareware)

"The Adventure Game Toolkit from Softworks ... provides all the
tools you need to build your own text based adventure games .... The
Adventure Game Toolkit is an extremely powerful development
package." -- Bob Napp (Big Blue Disk)

Recently, the Adventure Game Toolkit was awarded the "Golden Chalice"
Award by the Adventure And Strategy Club (of England).


HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS FOR AGT

IBM: The games created by the Adventure Game Toolkit requires a computer with
at least 384K of memory, MS-DOS 2.1, and at least one disk drive. It is
possible to use any kind of monitor and AGT will automatically adjust its
output to best suit the monitor.


THE ADVENTURE GAME TOOLKIT IS NOW "FREEWARE"

AGT is now "freeware." This means that the authors, David Malmberg and Mark
Welch, still retain the copyright to AGT and all of its related files, such
as the documentations and sample games. However, you or any other user may
use the AGT system to develop and distribute your own games without paying any
royalty to the AGT authors.

So enjoy!!
