Eamon Deluxe 5.0 Update.

I know it's been a while since I posted an update so I just want to let everyone know that the Eamon Deluxe 5.0 revision is still in full development and getting closer to being polished up and released.

The first round of play testing went very well with surprisingly few bug reports. I got a lot of suggestions for new features and tried my best to implement all of the reasonable suggestions I received. Currently there isn't a whole lot of new programming left to do. The Main Hall and character editors need some bug fixing and a few other random things here and there, plus the manuals need updating, but for the most part the 5.0 system is looking pretty stable now.

There are still a lot of classic adventures which were already converted and now need 5.0 update patches applied and then testing of those patches so I will be sending a final Beta copy to play testers before I release it for public download. However, I may release a stand alone copy of the Demo Adventure for public download as soon as I make sure it's fully ready so Eamon fans can get a taste of the new Eamon Deluxe without having to wait for the entire package to be finished.

Great news!

I will admit I was slightly wondering what was happening with Eamon deluxe, thanks a lot for the update.

I can't wait to get to trying the newly converted adventures.

If a copy of the edx demo adventure is posted I'll also be glad to put some news on and let the download be generally available.

I'll also post some news to the mailing list at and the guestbook on the site, sinse in a lot of ways Eamon has a great deal in common with textual gamebooks, (possibly even more than with parza based inform style interactive fiction), so it's quite possible players of gamebooks would enjoy Eamon as well.

With gamebooks being quite a going concern at the moment thanks to the Iphone, this could be another source of new Eamonaughts.
