Let me start off by wishing everyone a happy and creative 2013! Now, focusing on the creative bit, let me suggest you have a look at ADRIFT and maybe even craft a new text adventure. Yes, ADRIFT is indeed an interactive fiction creation toolkit that easily and via an almost intuitive GUI lets you create and publish your game. The built-in objects, locations, characters, tasks and events editors make perfect sense and, following a few short tutorials, even first timers will have something to show within an hour or so.
ADRIFT is free to download and use, though apparently donations are hugely appreciated. Oh, and it only runs on Windows PCs.
