Quest 5.3 iconQuest Publisher's description

Create, play and share text adventure games

Quest brings 1980's-style text adventure games up to date. Now you can create your own exciting text adventure, even including graphics and sounds. And you don't need to know how to program.

Easy-to-use visual editor
No programming required. Everything about your game is displayed in plain English, and a full tutorial is included. If you've ever wanted to create your own game, but have been put off by complicated programming languages, Quest is a great way to get started.

Share your game online
Share your game with friends, and the world, by uploading it to textadventures.co.uk. It's our popular website where people can play your game in their browser, without having to download any additional software.

Create stand-alone games
With Quest Packager, you can create a setup EXE file for your game. This means your game will be just like any other Windows application - your users can install it, with no additional downloads required.

Use graphics and sounds
You're not limited to text - your games can come alive with pictures, sound effects and music.

Create sophisticated games
Although Quest is easy to use, it can let you create games as complex as you like. You can create powerful scripts, all using the plain English editor, to get your game to work exactly how you want it.
