Mark Damon Hughes  | Aiee! An Interactive Environment Engine


Version 0.3, released 2004Oct19

   Aiee! allows you to design and play text adventures, or "interactive fiction". Aiee! adventures are written in a simple XML-based format, without the need for any programming experience. Aiee! adventures can even include illustrations and sound.


Download & Installation

  1. You must have the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), version 1.4 or later.
    Windows and Linux users will find the latest versions there.
    MacOS X users already have Java installed.
    MacOS 9 or lower cannot run Aiee!.
  2. Download and unzip (133K)
    (you can unzip it anywhere).
  3. Now start the game:
    Run ./
    Double-click on aiee.jar
    MacOS X:
    Double-click on aiee.jar

    If you want to play in text mode, change the size of the window, or send logging to a file other than default.log, you can call Aiee! from the command line:
    ./ -?
    java -jar aiee.jar -?
    shows the command-line options (java must be in your path; Windows users will need to append ;WHATEVER to My Computer|Advanced|Environment|PATH, where WHATEVER is the dir containing java.exe).

  4. Enjoy!
