Thanks to an initiative and effort of Anssi Räisänen, Alan v3 is now showcased on Roger Firths site "Cloak of Darkness". The site showcases a number of popular IF languages using a common simple game, "Cloak of Darkness". It previously showed Alan v2, but has now been updated to show Alan v3 instead.

{mosimage}Alan IF Home Pages have been maintained almost by hand up to now. I have used a number of free Content Management Systems for LAMP environments over the years. So now the time has come to upgrade Alan IF to MiaCMS, the latest fork of the old Mambo branch. I hope it will be easy to work with and that you will enjoy the layout.

The content has mostly just been lifted from the old site, so beware of some broken links, and (still) outdated information for a while to come.

Anssi Räisänen enters the 2008 Annual Interactive Fiction Competition with the Alan3 game "The Ngah Angah School of Forbidden Wisdom".

What They Say

"[the game] does not represent the real capabilities of the Alan Language but does demonstrate Alan's amazing ability to allow someone who has never done an iota of computer programming of any kind to produce SOMETHING within a few weeks!"
