About the Game
The Dreamhold is a gentle introduction to the world of IF. It’s a small game, and not too difficult. More importantly, The Dreamhold features the Tutorial Voice -- a helpful guide that will lead you through the basics of playing a text adventure.
[When you see a message like this, it’s the Tutorial Voice speaking!]
The Dreamhold is copyright 2003-4 by Andrew Plotkin. I created it with Inform 6, a free text-adventure development language created by Graham Nelson. My thanks for the beta-testing efforts of many people; notably Emily Short, Dan Efran, Julia Tenney, Karen Fabrizius, and Aleecia McDonald; and also the generous players and commentors of rec.games.int-fiction.
You can also play this game on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Download The Dreamhold from the App Store. (It's free to play, here or there.)
