glulxe interpreter is the reference implementation of
virtual machine standard. It was specifically designed for running
Interactive Fiction (a.k.a. Text Adventures). Version 0.4.3 of
glulxe is available from Zarf's homepage
from the Interactive Fiction Archive
Unfortunately I haven't found Debian/Ubuntu packages in the net, so I decided to make some by myself. Here is the quick and dirty result:
glulxe for Debian 4.0 "Etch" (i386):
glulxe for Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" (i386):
glulxe for Debian "Sid"/testing of 2008-06-08 (amd64):
glulxe source package for Debian and Debian based systems:
To compile the source package into a binary package you
will need the debianized version of Zarf's
glkterm library, which is available from
binary packages available from above do not need
glkterm installed on your system.
Please note that I am not an official Debian developer. These packages are thrown together in a rather random way and will propably eat your dog and blow up your house. However, on my machine, they work. Your mileage may vary.
These packages already contain a
glkterm to make them work on a 64 bit machine.
Feedback is welcome (send your rants to email@example.com).
