Question by David J: What programming language are text established games penned in?
I want to make a text based game, I dont know what language you use to create one, but I have used a construction tool or something. Anyone know what that is? A tool that lets you create rooms, etc.

The most common tool is Inform, which now (version 7) accepts a kind of natural language instruction — meaning that if you can describe your room conversationally, you can program the game to reproduce those results to players.The most common alternative is Tads; there are however oodles of “interactive fiction” languages. If you like, “Cloak of Darkness” is a brief sample game that allows you to see how similar instructions are given to different languages.
