TADS 2 is still a viable interactive fiction (IF) programming language, 'somewhat similar' to Inform 6.

TADS (2) Tutorial: Mark Engelberg's TADS Tutorial is an excellent way to get started with TADS. The Tutorial leads you through the process of creating a game, including all of the nuts-and-bolts details like setting up a text editor and running the compiler, and gives you a series of "lab assignments" so that you can apply what you learn in each chapter immediately. The Tutorial is aimed at DOS/Windows users, but that's only important in a few places. Note that the files are in Microsoft Word (".doc") format, so you'll need Word or a Word-compatible file viewer.
