DAAD Adventure Writer Tim Gilberts, Stefan Vogt, Infinite Imaginations / Aventuras AD 2014

Back in the late 1980s British developer Tim Gilberts, after having worked on Gilsoft's adventure tool The Quill, developed the multi-machine adventure writer DAAD under his Infinite Imaginations label for the Spanish Aventuras AD. This development tool allowed him to target a broad range of 8- and 16-bit systems, which included the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, PCW, Atari ST, Amiga, MSX and IBM PC-compatible, all while maintaining a single source file. Development on DAAD lasted from 1988 to 1991, but after Aventuras AD declared bankruptcy in 1992, the tool seemed to be lost forever. As luck would have it though, the system disks were recovered in 2014 by Mr. Andrés Samudio, CEO of Aventuras AD, and donated to the public domain. Unfortunately much of the original system, including English language support, was gone however, and it wasn't till Tim Gilbert collaborated with formed fellow Gilsoft member Stefan Vogt, that DAAD was restored to its former glory, and extended with English language support into DAAD Adventure Writer v2. The historical files from Aventuras AD that were rediscovered together with DAAD, mostly Spanish game master disks and sources can also be downloaded for free (Aventura Original, Jabato, Aventura Espacial, Chichen Itza, Templos Sagrados).
