Lazzah, Have you tried the program called Calibre? I'm not sure if it works with Kindle though, but I use it when I have purchased Kindle books and want to read them on my tablet.
It works like a charm.

Hello everyone, Nice to see a lot of friendly people.

Hmm what to say about myself. I'm 34, From South Africa. I'm a Natural Healer, Reiki Master and Spiritual Life Coach. Think I've been a gamer as long as I can remember (Most likely crawled out of my crib to grab the Atari Controller). I sometimes write stories and most of my friends have told me to try make a game from one of the stories and I've been wanting to make a game for a good while now. Tried all sorts of software, Either far to complicated or really frustrating. Tried Quest, Didn't get to far with that since a bug kept me from continuing the game I was making. I eventually found Adrift last year and totally forgot about it till I stumbled on the Adrift software on my computer (About a month ago). Saw how simple it was and liked what I saw. Still learning and trying to understand a few things but I'll eventually get there.

Not use to this whole forum way yet but just let me know if I posted in the wrong place rofl it happens.

Hi there (IB)
Welcome to our little corner of the universe. I'm sure you'll find us all a very nice bunch of people, except ... rofl
No, honestly, we're all very nice here. You may find the forum a bit quiet from time to time but don't let that stop you from posting comments or questions. Someone's bound to come around and answer them. We've got two really talented experts (apart from Campbell himself, of course) Elliot, and Saabie.
Anyway, get on with your game. We're looking forward to hear more about it.

Thanks Prune and yes I've noticed that people here are friendly. Elliot is already helping me with something and good to know about Saabie. Will post about my game once I've learnt more about Adrift and the more I learn, The more I like :yeah:

I can confirm that Calibre works fine on my Kindle.

Hi. New guy here. I'm in college for computer science. I occasionally DM tabletop RPGs. I would like to be able to make a few really good IF games with adrift. Someday I might like to work on video games. :yeah:

You know, I never entered myself in this thread.

I've become interested in screenwriting, and had always wanted to write a text adventure. Last year, my friend, who is taking college courses in writing, told me he had to write a text adventure of his own for class, and he told me there was a computer program for it. It turned out to be TWINE. It was wholly inadequate for my wishes. So I went looking on my own and discovered ADRIFT (and others, but I preferred ADRIFT). And this was my path to here.

I'm also a child of the 1980s who played a lot of the classic text and adventure games in their day, so I'm old school and will probably always use the term TEXT ADVENTURE, not getting used to INTERACTIVE FICTION.

I've been working on my first adventure for 9 months, learning AFRIFT as I go along, and revising frequently to reflect the new things I learn.

Re: How easy do you find Adrift V5?

Postby edwardpackard » Mon Mar 11, 2019 4:29 am

I usually play magic the gathering and make music and those things I find fun . I decided that I needed a new hobby so I was going to make an interactive fiction game . At first I thought well I have to learn BASIC cuz that would be the easiest way , but then with research I found this program adrift and I am getting started and I have watched one YouTube video so far and it looks like it's going to be easy and fun I have no clue how the old adrift versions were I just know that I grew up on choose your own adventure books and I am looking to see if I can add low quality pictures and my own midi songs . I think this is going to be super fun . I am just making this post here so that I can introduce myself and it's great to meet you all and I am so happy to be part of this new group and I will let you know in the future how things go . I'm not sure how long this is going to take to make my first interactive fiction but this looks like the best place to start . Espo 36 Midwest USA . :quotes:

Welcome Edward! I'm a big fan of CYOAs too, that's mostly what I work on these days, although on another site. ADRIFT is completely capable of doing that style of sure along with traditional interactive fiction (and untraditional interactive fiction) though if that's where your main interest is.
