The Beginner's Guide is a short book which aims to provide a basic grounding in Inform. A follow-as-you-go tutorial, the IBG creates three small games of increasing depth: Heidi, William Tell and Captain Fate. No previous experience of computer programming or interactive fiction design is assumed. The book concludes with helpful summaries and reference tables.
