What is Inform?
Inform is a free app for creating works of interactive fiction, available for MacOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Inside it is a powerful programming language based on English language text. This redesigned website is part of the preparations for open-sourcing the software.
Many Inform authors also write with Twine, and vice versa. Inform topics are frequently aired at the Interactive Fiction Community Forum. The Inform project supports the Interactive Fiction Technology Foundation. Lastly, Emily Short’s Interactive Storytelling contains some of the best writing about the genre today, and also hosts many more links.

Said about Inform as an alternative
Everything you can do in TADS, you can do in Inform7. The main difference is that Inform7 uses natural-language programming, and therefore, according to theory, is even better suited to writing interactive fiction.
