JACL - Adventure Creation Language
JACL is an interpreted computer language for writing text adventure games or interactive fiction. It is easy to learn and comes with an extensive library of game verbs that will allow you to create the beginnings of your first game quickly and easily.

JACL is an interpreted language, so once you have written your games they can be run without modification on any platform that has a JACL interpreter. The JACL interpreter uses the Glk API to talk to its user interface which allows it to be compiled with many different Glk implementations on many different operating systems.

Although interactive fiction is primarily a text-based medium, many of these Glk interfaces allow you to also fill your games with pictures and sound.
