For one local game jams, I want to make a text adventure. Yes, the idea of text adventures is anything, but new, such games existed from times when computers were with the size of the room.
No, what I want to ask your opinion about, is a game engine specifically suited for creating such games.
I know that there are a few such engines, and wonder if I should bother to make another one. I know, for example, about engine called "Instead". It's quite good, but does require knowledge of some programming skills. I don't know much about other such engines, but guess that at least a few exist.
I want to make an engine, where the user will only have to enter text, images and variables, and get a text game out of it. Also, with some skills, it can be used to write conversations for other games.
There can even be two variations: free\cheap version for just making text games, and one with a little higher price for adding them to other games.
What do you think, will someone want such engine?
