    Alan code is natural and easy to write. It's close to natural language so it's also easy to read and interpret, making your authoring a breeze.

  • Easy to Play

    There are interpreters for many platforms, most supporting graphics, making it easy to supplement your story with tantalizing imagery.

  • Easy to Develop

    Alan comes with a Integrated Development Environment sporting a modern environment and tools to take your edit, compile, play cycle to seconds.

alanide009Today the AlanIDE was released with some updates:

  • a toolbar and menu with the expected "Save" and "New" entries
  • the splash screen shows the actual version
  • the (unused and confusing) interpreter preference setting was removed
  • generated game files show up automatically in the navigator so that you can click on them to start the interpreter (as set in your operating system, same as when you double click on an .a3c-file in the file system)
  • updates over internet
