Overview - Game Features - Interface Features

 
     
 
 

Intuitive, Compelling, Customizable, Eye-catching

StormFront's primary goal is to reduce the complexity often associated with text-games, and modernize text-gaming in general. Several features in the front end promote this:

  • An intuitive and compelling command entry mechanism;
  • Structured, but easily customizable information displays;
  • Eye-catching graphics.
 
 
     
 
     
 
     
 

 

Recognizable, Easy and Rewarding

StormFront’s point-and-click and drag-and-drop mechanics provide players with a recognizable interface for interacting with our text game environments. Furthermore, clicking on a link and successfully interacting with the game is a rewarding experience that prompts the prospect towards further exploration.

 

 
 
     
 
     
         
   

Improved Inventory and Information Management

StormFront also has many other improvements over other text-game clients in the area of displaying game data, which include:

  • Auto-updating inventory windows;
  • Dynamic dialog mechanics;
  • Auto-collapsing windows;
  • Panel management tools.

All of these speak to the needs of users who must manage large amounts of information generated by text-based games.

 
         
         
         
 

 

Graphical Controls For Character Management

The Graphical Character Manager creates an opportunity for visual interaction with your character. Designing what your character will look like, reading about its racial history and culture, and managing skills are all available in one easy-to-use, attractive format.

At any time, you can manipulate your character's skills using the Skills Manager. This program lets each player customize their character's skills, to be changed at the click of the mouse, allowing for greater flexibility in character training and growth.
