Fabularium supports Unicode games, so if you would prefer to play in a language other than English, no problems! Just disable the built-in keyboard in the settings and use your own system keyboard. See screenshots for examples. In a future update, we will provide a means to program the built-in keyboard to use whatever script you want, as well as "hot keys" to issue common commands. The interface and play store descriptions will also be gradually localised into various languages over coming releases.
We care about typography! While the default settings should work for most games, Fabularium is also highly customisable. Make the margins as narrow or as wide as you want. Don't like the default fonts and colours? Change them. Adjust line spacing. Fiddle with other typographical features. Optimise that game for your device's screen. For maximum screen space, try using a hardware keyboard.
Fabularium is and always will be completely free, with no ads, and open source. It does not come bundled with any games; you will need to obtain these separately. There are many games freely available at www.ifdb.tads.org and www.ifarchive.org . You can download these games anywhere to your internal storage/SD card and then add them to your library from within the app. The app is also able to extract files from archives using ZIP, RAR, 7Z and other popular compression formats.
