In "No Time To Play" Felix Pleşoianu writes about the pleasures of writing an adventure in Alan.
Alan v3.0 beta3 is now available. Alan has been updated with what will probably be one of the last Beta versions before going 1.0 (planned for February 2014!). You can view the details of the changes in the Changes section. Windows downloads are available right now, with Linux and MacOSX coming in the next few days.
Today the AlanIDE was released with some updates:
Anssi Räisänen finished 13th out of almost 40 entries in the annual IFCOMP. "Ted Paladin and the Case of the Abandoned House" was developed using Alan v3 and the extensive library provided by Anssi himself. The game introduces a novel dimension of discovery.
There have been some indications out there in IF-land about a problem with restore in Alan alpha9 interpreters. One of the games that have been hit is "Room 206" by Byron Campbell, a game reviewed here recently.
The problem have now been fixed. Alpha9 interpreters for Windows have been patched, and the fix will be included in the upcoming beta1. (As well as all development snapshots from now on.) If you are uncertain if your interpreter have the problem, interpreters with a date of 2010-12-06 and later should be ok.
