    Mad is a powerful open-source adventure game engine and interpreter, ideally suited for old (non-parser) Sierra-style (King's Quest, Hero's Quest, Space Quest, etc...) adventures, but can be adjusted to other tastes as well.
    With Mad you can create your own graphical adventure games for free, with: high or low resolution, mp3 audio, A* pathfinding, alpha-blending, cross-platform support, and more. For more complete list of what Mad can do, check out the manual or the FAQ page. If you have any questions don't hesitate to post them up on the forums.
