Qt text-only interpreter for TADS

This package provides an interpreter for TADS game files, using a Qt interface. It can run either TADS 2 games (which have an extension of .gam) or TADS 3 games (which have an extension of .t3). See for a large collection of available TADS games.

This interpreter only supports text output. Games using HTML-TADS multimedia features will still work, but you won't see graphics or hear sounds. Other features include: * Full Unicode support for TADS 3 and HTML TADS games. * Full text justification. * Support for multiple user configurations, which you can switch between at runtime.

TADS, the Text Adventure Development System, is a system for writing and playing interactive fiction games. This means that the primary method for interacting with the game is to type in commands, to which the game produces a response in prose -- similar to Infocom's games from the 1980's.
