ElseIFPlayer is an Interactive Fiction interpreter created with a deep respect for the nature of the web. Powered by cheap-glkote and Emglken.

ElseIFPlayer, like Parchment, is based on Emglken but does not aim to replace it. While Parchment remains the de facto standard among web interpreters, ElseIFPlayer takes a fresh approach to text-only Interactive Fiction. ElseIFPlayer is Parchment's rebellious little brother.

Due to the reasons mentioned above, some games will look and feel better in ElseIFPlayer than ever before, while others may turn into a dreadful mess of letters.
