Re: TAB - Windows IF/Text Adventure Maker

Hi Exemptus,

Thank you for your interest in the TAB program.
I'm not familiar with the tool you mentioned but seems it was highly popular.
I got the impression that input or interaction was via a point 'n' click operation rather than using a parser-based driven system.

Regards,
catventure.
