Beta Interpreters 3.0beta5

Interpreters are the way you play Alan adventures. If you just want to play you should download one interpreter from here. They are usually supporting more features or complementing other Interactive Fiction players, like Gargoyle, than the ones in the complete development packages.

But if  you want to develop your own games you should start with a complete sdk here.

You can find them here.

Read more about AlanIDE here.
