The user controls the central character of the story and receives descriptions, reports etc. in either a firs person or second person narratives.
The two parts of ADRIFT are the generator and the runner. The generator is used to create the games that are then executed by the runner. ADRIFT was created to make the creations process of the games simpler. The user does not need to know any programming in order to create a text-based game (also known as interactive fiction). The generator takes care of all the coding in the background. The file outputted by the generator is compatible only with the runner program.
