Adventuron

Adventuron is a free web based text adventure authoring system.

The Adventuron text adventure creation system allows anyone to build modern or retro-style text adventures – that can be played on modern devices such as desktop, tablet, and mobile phones.

Games are compiled to a standalone HTML file that can be easily shared with friends, or published online.

Adventuron features full typography and theming support and is ideal for those starting to learn to code.

Depending on the complexity of your adventure, some games can actually be converted to run on 8-bit microcomputers, such as the ZX Spectrum.
