Gargoyle is an IF player that supports all the major interactive fiction
Most interactive fiction is distributed as portable game files. These
portable game files come in many formats. In the past, you used to have to
download a separate player (interpreter) for each format of IF you wanted to
Gargoyle is based on the standard interpreters for the formats it supports.
Gargoyle is free software released under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
All of the following interpreters have been compiled for Gargoyle and are included in the package:
* agility       |
* advsys        | 1.2
* alan          | 2.8.6
* alan3         | 3.0b2
* bocfel        | 0.6.1
* frotz         | 2.5.0
* geas          | 0.4
* git           | 1.2.9
* glulxe        | 0.4.7
* hugo          | 3.1.03
* jacl          | 2.9.0
* level9        | 5.1
* magnetic      | 2.3
* nitfol        | 0.5
* scare         | 1.3.10
* scottfree     | 1.14
* tads2         | 2.5.15
* tads3         | 3.1.0
These interpreters are freely distributable, but are still copyrighted by their authors and covered by their own licenses.
Gargoyle cares about typography! In this computer age of typographical
poverty, where horrible fonts, dazzling colors, and inadequate white space
is God, Gargoyle dares to rebel!
* Subpixel font rendering for LCD screens.
* Unhinted anti-aliased fonts: beautiful, the way they were designed.
* Adjustable gamma correction: tune the rendering for your screen.
* Floating point text layout for even spacing.
* Kerning for even more even spacing.
* Smart quotes and other punctuation formatting.
* Ligatures for 'fi' and 'fl'.
* Plenty o' margins.
* Plenty o' line spacing.
* Integrated scrollback.
The default font for Gargoyle is Bitstream Charter and Luxi Mono. Two vastly
underrated fonts that I find just perfect for screen reading. They are
included, so there is no need to install anything on your system.
Gargoyle does not use any operating system functions for drawing text, so it
can use any TrueType, OpenType or Postscript font file you specify in the
configuration file.
