A virtual machine designed by Andrew Plotkin which uses the Glk Application Programming Interface (API). The Inform language can be compiled for this virtual machine. Glulx imposes far less restrictive limitations on game size than the Z-machine and offers the I/O features of Glk, allowing Inform programmers to write larger games with more complicated user interfaces, without having to learn a new programming language.
