Advanced Authoring System adventure
AAS is an acronym for Advanced Authoring System. AAS is a system used to create text-based adventure games. They chose an XML-based design for AAS due to time constrictions. With this design, the GUI and game interpreter could be run in Java. Within a month, they set up the AAS manual, the AAS interpreter engine, the GUI, the AAS IDE, and the AAS interpreter's encryption. After the setup was complete, some of the members wrote and released a few sample games. Now AAS is available for all interactive fiction fans to enjoy.
